Promises, Promises to Close January 2nd
The current revival of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's Promises, Promises has announced a January 2, 2011 closing date. At that point, the show will have played 30 previews and 291 regular performances. Stars Sean Hayes, Tony Goldwyn, Dick Latessa, Molly Shannon (who will be replacing Katie Finneran's Tony Winning performance starting October 12th) and friend to the blog Kristin Chenoweth have all extended their contracts to stay with the show through then. A note of good news for the show: by the time it closes, the show is expected to turn a profit for its producers, and a tour of the revival is in the works.
