Promises, Promises Broadway Is a 2010 Revival of the Classic Neil Simon Musical
Features: Promises Promises NYC was the 2010 revival of the classic 1968 broadway musical. The script for Promises Promises NYC was written by legendary playwright Neil Simon, and was based off of the Academy Award-winning 1960 film The Apartment. This Broadway musical revival starred Sean Hayes from Will and Grace as Chuck and Kristen Chenoweth from Wicked, and retained the timeless charm of the original production.
Why We Go: Promises Promises NYC starred two very talented and award-winning performers and was a revival of Neil Simon's classic 1968 production. It was a Broadway musical that, like many of Neil Simon's plays, could make you laugh, tense up, cry, and identify with the characters shown.
- Neil Simon: It's hard to deny the gift that Neil Simon possesses. He is one of America's greatest playwrights and the writer of famous Broadway plays like Brighton Beach Memoirs and Biloxi Blues. He did a brilliant job with this Broadway musical too.
- Award-Winning Cast: Both of the lead actors, Sean Hayes and Kristen Chenoweth, have won awards for their acting talents in their respective shows. Kristen has won a Tony for her performance in Wicked as well as an Emmy for her performance in the TV series Pushing Daisies. Together, they brought their acting talents as well as their voices to the stage.
- Memorable Soundtrack: The songs for Promises Promises NYC are the most memorable part of this emotional Broadway musical. From the song "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" to the title-based song "Promises, Promises," the soundtrack will have you singing the lyrics while they bring a tear to your eye.
Inside Knowledge: The 1967 song "I Say a Little Prayer" by Dionne Warwick was added to the revival of Promises Promises NYC for Fran to sing in the first act of the musical.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Bring Tissues: The riveting plot point in Act 2 will bring a tear to your eye. If you cry easily at Broadway shows, then you should be prepared with some tissues. This Broadway musical is moving.
- Do See The Apartment: The non-musical Academy Award-winning film The Apartment is an incredible movie, and one we recommend that you see if you liked Promises Promises NYC.
- Don't Miss Future Revivals: The 2010 revival of Promises, Promises on Broadway closed in January of 2011. If you ever get the chance to see another revival, don't miss out!
- Don't Expect Wholesome Family Fun: The premise for Promises, Promises Broadway is very adult-oriented. Unless you are comfortable with bringing your six-year-old to a story based around men cheating on their wives, we would recommend that you leave your kids at home if you want to enjoy this Neil Simon classic.
