Kristin Chenoweth and Sean Hayes are set to star in a revival of musical “Promises, Promises,” returning to Broadway in spring 2010.
Chenoweth, fresh off an Emmy win for “Pushing Daisies” and an episode of “Glee,” and Hayes of “Will & Grace” have signed on to revive the Burt Bacharach-Hal David-Neil Simon musical “Promises, Promises,” according to Playbill.
“Promises” is a musical adaptation of the Billy Wilder film “The Apartment,” about a corporate drone named Chuck
Baxter, who works his way up the corporate ladder by lending his apartment out to executives for their affairs. Baxter eventually falls for Fran, an office woman invited to the apartment by an executive. The movie won the Best Picture and Best Director Oscars in 1960 and garnered Best Actor/Actress nominations for stars Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine. “Promises, Promises” won Tony awards during its original staging for stars Jerry Orbach and Marion Mercer in 1969.
Chenoweth has previously appeared on Broadway in “Wicked” and “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” for which she won a Tony award. This will mark the Broadway debut of Sean Hayes.
