Based on the 1960 Academy Award®-winning Billy Wilder film "The Apartment" that starred Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine, "PROMISES, PROMISES" tells the story of the Consolidated Life Insurance Company and Chuck Baxter, one of its charming young employees. In an effort to advance at the company, Chuck lends executives his apartment for their extramarital romantic trysts. But things become slightly complicated when Fran Kubelik, the object of Chuck's affection, becomes the mistress of one of his executives. With Neil Simon's funny and touching book and Burt Bacharach and Hal David's hit-packed score, "PROMISES, PROMISES" is a unique and popular part of the musical theatre canon.
