The stage version of the iconic novel-turned film, The War of the Roses, follows the legendary Jonathan and Barbara Rose as their seemingly perfect marriage devolves into a "deadly search and destroy mission" for each other's most prized possessions. Adapted by Warren Adler from his novel, the play has a distinct identity from the dark comedy blockbuster hit starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito. The War of the Roses has opened to 'sold-out' shows and spectacular reviews in foreign language translations internationally. The global impact of this cautionary tale about the perils of divorce has not only proliferated across media, but it has also entered the Zeitgeist and morphed into the nomenclature of divorce, where the phrase 'The War of the Roses' is now the recognized metaphor for a contentious divorce. Watch this "nasty and amusing battle of the sexes" come alive on the stage.
