Burt Bacharach's incredible music and Hal David's brilliant lyrics come together with a book by legendary playwright Neil Simon in Promises, Promises - the hit Broadway musical based on the Billy Wilder film - The Apartment.

Chuck Baxter is junior executive at a New York insurance company, where his mid-town residence makes him popular with the executive bosses - who promise him promotions in order to "entertain" at his apartment. A morally tricky dilemma gets worse for Chuck when he realises his own secret crush, Fran Kubelik, has been invited over to his place for a rendezvous by Chuck's Manager, JD Sheldrake.

This Tony Award Nominated, Grammy Award Winning Musical is a triumph of 1960's sexual work-place politics, with a quick witted script and unforgettable songs including-"knowing When To Leave", "Promises, Promises" and "I'll Never Fall in Love Again".

First produced for the Broadway Stage by David Merrick. The musical is presented by arrangement with Tams-Witmark Music Library.

On at The Southwark Playhouse from the 13th of January until the 18th of February. For tickets go to www.southwarkplayhouse.co.uk
