Before the Days of Wine and Roses musical premiered off Broadway at Atlantic Theater Company in 2023, its story began as a 1958 teleplay and 1962 film. The 1962 film starred Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick, both of whom earned Oscar nominations. The art direction and costume design also received nods, and the title theme won the top prize for Best Song.
The musical adaptation features new songs by Adam Guettel and a book by Craig Lucas, adapted from JP Miller's screenplay. Days of Wine and Roses is the duo's first musical collaboration since The Light in the Piazza in 2003, which earned six Tony Awards, including Best Original Score. The show got 11 total nominations, including Best Musical.
Directing Days of Wine and Roses is Michael Greif, who's known for staging musicals like Rent and Dear Evan Hansen. He directs two musical veterans in the lead roles: O’Hara is a Tony winner for The King and I and a nominee for The Bridges of Madison County, South Pacific, The Pajama Game, and Kiss Me, Kate. James is a three-time nominee for Shrek, Sweet Smell of Success, and Something Rotten!, and he just starred in Into the Woods on Broadway.
Broadway favorites Kelli O'Hara and Brian d'Arcy James take the stage in this adaptation of the classic 1962 film. When lovers Joe and Kirsten fall in love and then into alcoholism, can their relationship be saved? See this romantic drama reimagined by the writers of The Light in the Piazza.
