Roman Holiday: The Cole Porter Musical Eyeing B’way

March 23rd, 2016 | By Imogen Lloyd Webber

Will this new tuner be easy to love? Roman Holiday—The Cole Porter Musical is aiming for Broadway in the fall of 2017. The show will premiere as part of SHN’s 2016-2017 season and is scheduled to play a limited engagement May 24, 2017 through June 28 at San Francisco's Golden Gate Theatre.

Based on the classic 1953 film that starred Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, Roman Holiday—The Cole Porter Musical will feature Cole Porter classics such as "Night and Day,” “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye” and “Easy to Love.” The book will be by Kathy Speer, Terry Grossman and Paul Blake.

In the midst of a whirlwind tour of European capitals, a young princess yearns to experience life—to explore the world beyond diplomatic dinners and Royal balls. Enter an American reporter, who, almost overnight, goes from covering the royal family to covering up her great escape. And in the span of 24 unforgettable hours, they discover the magic of Rome, the promise of love, and a secret they will share forever.
