Adam Guettel and Craig Lucas' Days of Wine and Roses will transfer to Broadway in 2024, with a run beginning January 6 at Studio 54. Opening night is January 28 for the 16-week limited engagement. The musical played a world premiere run Off-Broadway at Atlantic Theater Company earlier this year. Read reviews for the earlier run here.
Both Kelli O'Hara and Brian d'Arcy James, who led the Off-Broadway bow, will be back to star in the Broadway run, with further casting to be announced.
Also returning is the entire creative team, led by director Michael Greif. As at the Atlantic, the production will feature choreography by Sergio Trujillo and Karla Puno Garcia, scenic design by Lizzie Clachan, costume design by Dede Ayite, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by Kai Harada, hair and wigs by David Brian Brown, and orchestrations by Guettel and Jamie Lawrence. Kimberly Grigsby is also back as music director. Casting is by The Telsey Office's Craig Burns.
Adapted from the 1962 film and a 1958 teleplay, Days of Wine and Roses is somewhat of a Light in the Piazza reunion. Guettel and Lucas previously collaborated on the 2005 musical, with Guettel winning Tony Awards for his score and orchestrations, and Lucas receiving a Tony nod for his book. O'Hara starred and was Tony-nominated for her performance as Clara.
The Broadway bow is being produced by Kevin McCollum, Mark Cortale, Lorenzo Thione, and Joey Monda, by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures. Though Roundabout Theatre Company owns Studio 54, Days of Wine and Roses is not a Roundabout production.
