  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Promises, Promises

    CHARLES ISHERWOOD

    April 25, 2010: For a bunch of desk jockeys, the boys from Consolidated Life are surprisingly athletic. In Rob Ashford’s revival of the 1968 musical “Promises, Promises,” which opened on Sunday night at the Broadway Theater, the male members of the chorus demonstrate that wearing skinny suits needn’t keep corporate executives from playing leap frog, turning cart wheels, bouncing off desks or frugging like, well, mad men.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF Promises, Promises

    April 25, 2010: The hypnotic Burt Bacharach beat remains undiminished some four decades after it was unleashed in ''Promises, Promises,'' the 1968 musical now getting an agreeable if not altogether transporting revival on Broadway.

    'Promises' are fulfilled

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    April 26, 2010: Burt Bacharach and Hal David's 1968 hit "Promises, Promises" has been called too silly to bring back. But the revival that opened on Broadway last night embraces this very '60s brand of fluff with contagious gusto.

  • BACKSTAGE REVIEW OF Promises, Promises

    April 25, 2010: While “Promises, Promises” may have been a perfectly timed commercial confection for 1968, it’s never been an A-list musical. Neil Simon’s anything-for-a-laugh book coarsens its basis, Billy Wilder’s classic 1960 film “The Apartment,” while Hal David’s trite pop lyrics strain mightily when asked to convey character or advance plot. Only Burt Bacharach’s fizzy score is the real deal, with its original and period-defining sound.

  • HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW OF Promises, Promises

    April 25, 2010: It seems we have "Mad Men" to thank for the buoyant new production of "Promises, Promises," receiving its first Broadway revival since its premiere more than 40 years ago. This musical adaptation of Billy Wilder's classic film "The Apartment" has clearly tapped into the '60s era nostalgia so vividly rendered by the AMC television series.
