I saw Promises, Promises (Broadway), but I don't remember exactly when. Overall, I'd say it was a 5-star rating. I'd summarize it by saying “Sean Hayes, Kristin Chenoweth and entire cast/crew/pit were superb! Laughs galore!”

I had a stupendous time and left the show feeling giddy and thrilled to have seen such acting and singing. I'd describe the show as fun, extremely entertaining, and pure Neil Simon. Sean & kristin improvising after a laugh was a highlight of the show because of some very funny lines. If this were a movie, I'd rate it PG. I would recommend this show to all but not to very young (under 9).

I saw this show because of Sean HAyes and Kristin Chenoweth. I would see it again. I sat in the left orchestra area of the theater. The view was perfect and the seats were comfy.

The opening song and dance number was fabulous! The kids loved the song "Promises," which they had never heard before! They also could not believe Sean Hayes, "Just Jack," could sing so well!
