What's the story?
When a couple meets up in the airport departures lounge on their way to a new and exciting life neither of them can know what the future has in store for them. As they fall in love, they also fall down a miasmic rabbit hole of alcoholism, which they cannot escape from.
Since its opening, the show has received no shortage of reviews. See below to find out what critics had to say.
"Days of Wine and Roses is sumptuous from start to finish, a resplendent melding of music and acting and storytelling that dares us to confront lessons we only thought we learned ages ago." Deadline
"Director Michael Greif gets assured performances from principals and ensemble alike, and the design team maintains a sense of time, place and cinematic fluidity" New York Stage Review
"The design sets the scene just as successfully. Dede Ayite's costumes slate-gray suits and pink house dresses look like they've been ripped from an old catalogue, and they conjure the period as effectively as Ben Stanton's neo-noir lighting." TheatreMania
"In its iconic exploration of alcohol's seductive toxicity, Days of Wine and Roses (the Musical), directed by Michael Greif, is even more searing and poignant in its transfer to Broadway from its initial premiere at the Atlantic Theater Company." Theater Pizzazz
"This is a haunting, striking production. Don't miss it." Theater Pizzazz
"This is demanding stuff, both dramatically and musically, but it couldn't ask for better interpreters than O'Hara and James, two of Broadway's finest singing actors." TimeOut
