Variety has reported that following the LA production of Parade, Rob Ashford will begin prepping the Broadway revival of Promises, Promises that has been rumoured ever since Ashford staged a reading of the Burt Bacharach musical in March 2008:
(Rob Ashford is) on board to helm a potential revival of Promises, Promises that could materialize on the Rialto in the spring…. (The show) has Craig Zadan, Neil Meron and the Weinsteins on the list of attached producers.
Only whispers, perhaps – but exciting ones. I think it’s about time Promises, Promises had a revival on Broadway. I wonder if Sean Hayes or Anne Hathaway, who participated in the aforementioned reading, are still attached to the project in any way.
