What Is the Story of Promises, Promises?
Based on the 1960 Oscar-winning film The Apartment, this musical comedy tells the story of Chuck Baxter, an ambitious employee of Consolidated Life Insurance Company on his way up. As a bachelor, Chuck has what some of his colleagues desire: an apartment for hanky-panky. With the promise of promotion dangled before him, Chuck lends these senior executives his place for their extramarital trysts. As they get access to his place for their affairs, Chuck gets the key to his aspirations—and a rung (though a lowly one) on the corporate ladder. But Chuck becomes more than a little conflicted when he learns that Fran Kubelik, the object of his affection, is the mistress of his boss, the man who holds the key to both Chuck’s flat and his future.
