Presented by FOGG Theatre and the 959 Group: A Staged Reading of
Bottle Shock the musical
October 14, 16 in Z Below
A staged reading of Bottle Shock The Musical, by co-creators Charles Vincent Burwell and James D Sasser, directed by Kent Nicholson, is based on the 2008 film, with story originally by Ross Schwartz & Lannette Pabon and Jody Savin & Randall Miller, screenplay by Jody Savin & Randall Miller and Ross Schwartz. Inspired by the true story of the famous 1976 “Judgment of Paris,” the musical follows one of the winning Napa wineries, Chateau Montelena, and the relationship between owner Jim Barrett and his son Bo. When English sommelier Steven Spurrier shows up in Napa looking for contenders for his “friendly and impartial competition” between French and American wines to be held in Paris, Barrett is skeptical. But at the urging of his son and the community, his Chardonnay is included, and history is made.
