Promises, Promises

Actors on stageA group of friends made our 27th year in a row into New York today to see a Broadway play. After a superb lunch at Vice Versa we saw Promises, Promises. It was certainly easy to identify with the vintage. The play is based on the 1960 Billy Wilder film The Apartment that starred Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine. Based on Neil Simon’s book and Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s hit-packed score (“I’ll Never Fall In Love Again,” “Promises, Promises” and “Knowing When to Leave”), the play turned out to be a forty year return to the stage that was quite entertaining and very well performed.
