Notes and Editorial Reviews

Book by Neil Simon, based on the screenplay for "The Apartment" by Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond. Music by Burt Bacharach, lyrics by Hal David.

It's Manhattan. It's the '60s. And the city is back in full swing, in Broadway's first-ever revival of Promises, Promises starring Emmy® Award-winner Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) as Chuck Baxter, the enterprising associate on the way up, and Tony® and Emmy® Award-winner Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked) as Fran Kubelik, the cafeteria waitress whose romantic troubles have got her down. The musical is based on the Oscar®-winning Billy Wilder film, The Apartment. The creative team creates a perfect cocktail: the splashy score is by the Academy Award®-winning
Read more team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and includes such songs as “I'll Never Fall In Love Again” and the straight-up swinging title tune; the book takes turns tickling your funny bone and breaking your heart, courtesy of the legendary Neil Simon, and it's all topped off with a sparkling blend of direction and choreography by Tony® and Emmy® Award-winner Rob Ashford. Promises, Promises is an intoxicating evening of Broadway magic.

This production of Promises, Promises has received five Outer Critics Circle nominations, including Outstanding Revival of a Musical, Outstanding Choreographer for Rob Ashford, Outstanding Actor in a Musical for Sean Hayes, Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical for Dick Latessa and Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical for Katie Finneran.
