Tickets Now On Sale To See Kristin Chenoweth and Sean Hayes In Promises, Promises

Being a huge Burt Bacharach fan I am really looking forward to seeing Promises, Promises on Broadway. Of course having the talented and adorable Tony and Emmy winner Ms. Kristen Chenoweth certainly helps too. This marks the first time the show is being revived on the Great White Way since the original 1968 Broadway production which ran for 1,281 performances. Besides Ms. Chenoweth the show stars fellow Emmy winner Sean Hayes(Will and Grace)who is making his Broadway debut.

Rounding out the cast are Tony nominee Brooks Ashmanskas(Present Laughter),Tony winner Katie Finneran(Noises Off),and Tony Goldwyn. For those of you unfamiliar with the show Promises, Promises is actually based on the 1960 Academy Award winning film The Apartment. Besides music by Burt Bacharach it has lyrics by his long time collaborator Hal David and a book by Neil Simon. Even if you are not familiar with the show I'm sure you have heard some of it's music.

Two of it's most well known songs are "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" and the title song "Promises, Promises" which became hit singles for singer Dionne Warwick. Previews are set to begin at the Broadway Theatre on March 27,2010 with opening night scheduled for April 25. With only two other revivals still running(A Little Night Music and La Cage Aux Folles)it stands a good chance at some Tony nominations this May. I for one hope it is a big fat hit. We shall see. Until next time theatre fans.
