BWW Review: SE MEU APARTAMENTO FALASSE... (Promises, Promises) Brings Bacharach-David's Smart Pop Music and the Wry Humor of Neil Simon to Sao Paulo.
by Claudio Erlichman - Jan 24, 2018

Burt Bacharach and Hal David, whose pop songs pretty much defined the mid-to-late 1960s and early 1970s, only wrote one Broadway show, Promises, Promises.
