They are not long, the days of wine and roses. The Broadway musical Days of Wine and Roses will end its limited run at Studio 54 early. Originally scheduled to run through April 28, the show will now play its final performance on March 31.

Days of Wine and Roses is adapted from J. P. Miller's 1958 teleplay and 1962 film of the same name, following a couple who quickly fall in love and then into alcoholism, upending their lives and their family. Tony Award winner Kelli O'Hara and four-time nominee Brian d'Arcy James star as the couple, Kirsten and Joe.

The cast also includes Byron Jennings, Tabitha Lawing, Sharon Catherine Brown, Tony Carlin, Bill English, Olivia Hernandez, David Jennings, David Manis, Steven Booth, Nicole Ferguson, Addie Manthey, and Kelcey Watson.

Michael Greif directs Days of Wine and Roses, which premiered off Broadway with Atlantic Theater Company in 2023 before beginning Broadway performances on January 6. Between Broadway and off Broadway, the show will have played 182 total performances in New York.

New York Theatre Guide's four-star review of the Broadway show reads, "Kelli O'Hara and Brian d'Arcy James give career-best performances."
