Burt Bacharach and Hal David's score...bubbles as brightly as ever

Harry Forbes

Closed 2 Jan 2011

It's Manhattan. It's the '60s. And the city is back in full swing, in Broadway's first-ever revival of Promises, Promise - starring Emmy® Award winner Sean Hayes as the enterprising associate on the way up, and Kristin Chenoweth as the cafeteria waitress whose romantic troubles have got her down.

Don't miss this smart and sexy musical based on the Oscar®-winning Billy Wilder film, The Apartment.

The creative team is a perfect cocktail: a splashy score by the Academy Award®-winning team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, including such songs as "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" and the straight-up swinging title tune.

Add a book that takes turns tickling your funny bone and breaking your heart, courtesy of the legendary Neil Simon.

Top it all off with a sparkling blend of direction and choreography by Tony® and Emmy® Award winner Rob Ashford - and you've got an intoxicating evening of Broadway magic.
