Set in the 1930s with songs by Cole Porter, Bert Shevelove's clever Musical adaptation gives new life to Philip Barry's 1928 play Holiday, one of America's most popular comedies

It focuses on hedonistic young Wall Street attorney Johnny Case who, driven by his passion to live life as a holiday, contemplates abandoning his career for a carefree existence by marrying wealthy upper class Julia Seton

Will the two turn their backs on old money and old values for a shared life?
