Promises, Promises Summary

Nominated for 4 Tony Awards including Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical. 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 (Will and Grace) as the enterprising associate on the way up, and Tony® and Emmy® Award winner Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked) 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.
