Newly released production shots offer a first look at the Broadway transfer of Days of Wine and Roses, now in previews at Studio 54 and headed for a January 28 opening night. With music and lyrics by Adam Guettel and a book by Craig Lucas, the new musical stars Kelli O'Hara and Brian d'Arcy James. Performances continue through April 28.

The show comes to Broadway following a 2023 Off-Broadway premiere via Atlantic Theater Company. Read reviews for the earlier run here.

O'Hara and d'Arcy James are back starring as Kirsten Arnesen and Joe Clay (respectively) after leading the Off-Broadway bow, with much of that cast returning alongside them, including 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.

Also returning is the entire creative team, led by director Michael Greif. As at the Atlantic, the production 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.

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 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.
