Promises, Promises

"Burt Bacharach's incredible music and Hal David's brilliant lyrics come together with a book by legendary playwright Neil Simon in Promises, Promises - the hit Broadway musical based on the Billy Wilder film The Apartment.

Chuck Baxter is junior executive at a New York insurance company, where his mid-town residence makes him popular with the executives bosses - who promise him promotion in order to "entertain" at his apartment. A morally tricky dilemma gets worse for Chuck when he realises his own secret crush, Fran Kubelik, has been invited over to his place for a rendezvous by Chuck's Manager, JD Sheldrake.

This Tony Award-Nominated, Grammy Award Winning musical is a triumph of 1960s sexual work-place politics, with a quick witted script and unforgettable songs including Knowing When To Leave, Promises, Promises and I'll Never Fall in Love Again."
