Days Of Wine and Roses will finish up its limited run faster than expected. The new Adam Guettel-Craig Lucas musical will now close March 31. It was originally expected to run until April 28 at Studio 54 on Broadway. The musical began previews January 6 and opened January 28. When it closes, it will have played 25 previews and 73 regular performances.

“On behalf of my producing partners, it has been a true honor to produce this exquisitely beautiful production," producer Kevin McCollum said in a statement. "Days of Wine and Roses may be ending its engagement at Studio 54, but it will have a long life on our cast album, in future productions and in the hearts and minds of the people lucky enough to have experienced it on Broadway and Off-Broadway this summer at the Atlantic Theater Company. What is exciting is that Broadway theatregoers will still have 31 more chances to see Kelli O'Hara and Brian d'Arcy James in this glorious production.”

Adapted from the 1962 film and a 1958 teleplay, Days of Wine and Roses starred Kelli O'Hara and Brian d'Arcy James as a couple whose lives spiral downward as a result of alcoholism. Guettel wrote the music and lyrics, and Lucas wrote the book.

Days of Wine and Roses transferred quickly after a successful 2023 Off-Broadway run at Atlantic Theater Company. The cast of the show also included Byron Jennings as Arnesen, Sharon Catherine Brown as Mrs. Nolan, Bill English as Mr. Shaw, Olivia Hernandez as Betty, and David Jennings as Jim Hungerford. New to the company are Tony Carlin as Rad, Tabitha Lawing as Lila, and David Manis as Delaney. Rounding out the company are swings Steven Booth, Nicole Ferguson, and Kelcey Watson; and understudy Addie Manthey.

The show was led by director Michael Greif. It features 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.

The Broadway bow is produced by Kevin McCollum, Mark Cortale, Sing Out, Louise! Productions, Atlantic Theater Company, Robert Greenblatt, Nederlander Presentations, Inc., Wild Oak Media, Bob Boyett Theatricals, and Lucas McMahon. The production is presented in association with Roundabout Theatre Company, which owns Studio 54, though Days of Wine and Roses is not part of Roundabout's season.
