News   Milligan, Rubbe and Phillips Are Wine Lovers Beginning Dec. 1
Wine Lovers, billed as "the wine-tasting musical," makes its debut at the Triad Theater Dec. 1.

From Dec. 1-3 and Dec. 8-10, theatregoers have the chance to enjoy six different wines while watching the Manhattan premiere of the new musical. Holly-Anne Ruggiero directs the production, which stars Kinsey's Tuck Milligan, Blue Man Group's Eric Rubbe and The Scarlet Pimpernel's Jessica Phillips. Show time is 7 PM. Wine Lovers features a score by composer-jazz pianist Gary Negbaur and wine expert Michael Green and a book by Travis Kramer. The musical, according to press notes, "tells the story of two mismatched students at a wine class led by an effervescent teacher and their journey of discovery."

Co-creator Green said in a statement, "The original concept came out of the inherent theatricality of a wine class, and the reasons why people attend a class." Negbaur added, "Wine is such an inherently romantic beverage that turning a wine tasting into a musical love story just felt natural."

The Triad Theatre is located in Manhattan at 158 West 72nd Street. For more information or to purchase $65 tickets, visit Attendees must be 21 or over.
