GENRE

There’s a war coming to Broadway—but don’t expect to see dueling Yorks and Lancasters.

Instead, this War of the Roses will see Warren Adler adapting his own 1981 novel, a black comedy that follows an affluent couple (yes, their last name is Rose) as they embark on a contentious divorce. The book was adapted into a movie in 1989, starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito, who also directed the film. (It marked the trio’s third time working together, after 1984’s Romancing the Stone and its 1985 sequel The Jewel of the Nile.)

Adler, also the author of Random HeartsThe Sunset GangPrivate Lives, and Funny Boys, has released 33 novels total and is also a playwright with the stage versions of WindmillsLibido, and Dead in the Water under his belt. Tony-winning veterans Jay Gutterman, Cindy Gutterman, Cathy Chernoff, Carl Moellenberg, and Wendy Federman will produce the Broadway version of Roses. Further details about casting, the show’s creative team, its theatrical home, and its opening date have not yet been announced.
