Promises, Promises


Presented by Aria Entertainment and Senbla

Burt Bacharach musical Promises, Promises is to be performed in London for the first time since 1969.

The show, which is based on the 1960 film The Apartment and has not been seen in London since its 1969 premiere, will run at Southwark Playhouse in January 2017.

With music by Bacharach, lyrics by Hal David and a book by Neil Simon, Promises, Promises originated on Broadway in 1968, where it ran for more than 1,000 performances.


“..an incredibly fun show that could easily be watched again and again – now that is a promise!”

Debbie Gilpin – Broadway World

“..another jewel in London’s theatre crown.”

Jonathan Baz

“Bronagh Lagan’s loving, warmly detailed production gets the period exactly right, with smartly evocative sets and costumes by Simon Wells and shimmying 1960s-inflected choreography by Cressida Carre.”

Mark Shenton – The Stage

“This musical boasts an impeccable pedigree..”

Michael Billington – The Guardian

“the full-throated energy of the entire ensemble make this a spirited production”
