Roman Holiday San Francisco Tickets
Roman Holiday San Francisco TicketsBased on the hit 1953 film starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday is a romantic comedy musical about the relationship between Joe Bradley, an expatriate reporter living in Rome, and the sheltered Princess Ann. After eluding her handlers on a state visit, Ann sets out to experience Rome on her own for the first time. However, through a serendipitous encounter, she becomes romantically entangled with Joe, who’s also seeking a good story. The film earned Audrey Hepburn an Academy Award for Best Actress in her debut role. Dalton Trumbo (who was blacklisted at the time) also won an Academy Award for writing. Featuring the catchy music of Cole Porter, Roman Holiday is a brand-new take on the beloved film classic. Audiences in San Francisco can now experience the romantic comedy live on stage.
A Fairy Tale in RomeThe musical adaptation of Roman Holiday originally premiered at the outdoor Muny or the St. Louis Municipal Opera Theatre between July 9-15, 2001, with the music of Cole Porter, the composer and playwright behind Anything Goes and Kiss Me Kate. The film was adapted for the stage by the Muny’s executive producer Paul Blake, who also wrote the book for the nationally renowned musical adaptation of White Christmas. The cast for the original production featured Broadway’s Jeff McCarthy as Joe and Catherine Brunell as Princess Ann. Following a long hiatus, Paul Blake revived Roman Holiday in 2012 at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, where it received effusive praise as a fun, lighthearted romance. The musical went dormant again after Paul Blake took over as lead producer of Beautiful: A Carole King Musical. In 2017, a new version of the musical with a revised book by Paul Blake, Kathy Speer and Terry Grossman premiered at the BroadwaySF-owned Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco. The production starred Stephanie Styles as Ann and Drew Gehling as Joe. Though the performance at the Golden Gate Theatre was billed as a pre-Broadway engagement, Roman Holiday has not yet made its Broadway debut.

What can I expect from a performance of Roman Holiday?Though the original film was not associated with Cole Porter in any way, the stage adaptation by Paul Blake reimagines the story as a jukebox musical filled with Porter’s famous songs. This stemmed from a decision to add an authentic period-specific score instead of trying to create an original score that mimicked the music from the era. Though the story is mostly the same as the film, the writers added two new characters: an aunt for Ann to confide in and a girlfriend for Irving Radovich. The show is appropriate for audiences of all ages, but your local theater may have specific age restrictions.
