Promises, Promises

Audiences = 4.6

New in 2010
Sean Hayes (Emmy winner for "Will & Grace") and Kristin Chenoweth (Tony nominee for "Wicked") star in a revival of Burt Bacharach's swingin' '60s musical.
Closes January 2nd.

The Broadway production of Promises, Promises closed January 2, 2011. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

Set in 1962, in the Manhattan headquarters of a giant insurance conglomerate, "Promises, Promises" tells the story of a junior executive on his way up (Mr. Hayes) and an executive dining room hostess on her way down (Ms. Chenoweth). All in all, it feels a bit like a singing, dancing version of "Mad Men."

Broadway critics were less than thrilled by this first-ever revival, with most agreeing that the only compelling reason to see it is the terrifically appealing Mr. Hayes. He has moments of comedic brilliance (including a Jerry Lewis-ish tango with a ultra-mod chair), sings well, and gives an altogether winning performance as the enterprising young exec.

Unfortunatly, Ms. Chenoweth's enormous talents are largely wasted as the sadder-but-wiser hostess. She gives it her all, though, and delivers the show's best known songs ("I Say a Little Prayer" and "I'll Never Fall in Love Again") with conviction. Kristin Chenoweth will not perform Dec 29 at 8pm, Dec 30 at 2pm & 8pm, and Jan 1 at 8pm.

The show's best moments come at the start of the second act, when Sean Hayes has about 20 minutes of truly hilarious physical comedy with "Saturday Night Live" alum Molly Shannon.

Here's a bit of video that will give you a sense of the overall vibe of the show:
