Sean Hayes and Kristin Chenoweth are headed to Broadway.
The Emmy-winning Will & Grace scene-stealer and the Tony- and Emmy-winning petite powerhouse (Wicked, Pushing Daisies) have put the rumors to rest and signed on to headline the revival of the musical Promises, Promises.
The musical, based on the 1960 Oscar-winning Billy Wilder film The Apartment starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine, was written by three superstars – Neil Simon (book), Burt Bacharach (music), and Hal David (lyrics) – and includes songs such as “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” and “Promises, Promises.”
Promises, Promises is set to open on April 25, with previews beginning on March 28.

Performances are set to begin on Dec. 28, with an opening scheduled for Jan. 24. The limited engagement will run for 14 weeks only.
