The new musical Boomers: Promises Made, Not Kept is hoping to land on Broadway in 2012, according to a Jan. 25 press announcement.

The production features book, music and lyrics by Peter Baron with orchestrations by Mark Sensinger.

Boomers: Promises Made, Not Kept, according to press notes, "follows the life of Baby Boomer Will over three decades, from high school football to rock and roll experimentation to eventually Wall Street aspirations and a failing marriage. This journey through the years reflects upon the moral and social climate that after WWII dramatically shaped and changed the world forever, and those values rethought and questioned as the last generation of 'united War Heroes' struggled to raise their sons and daughters with a dying foresight into the importance of altruism in an emerging liberalistic and later capitalistic existence."

Author Baron, who toured the East Coast from 1975-1977 as a lead singer and guitarist, said in a statement, "I was a rocker, but I always had this desire to be a creator of musical theatre. To finally do it is a dream come true."

Mark Schoenfeld is the musical's artistic advisor.

Promises Made, Not Kept premiered in 2002 as a staged reading in New Hampshire. Twelve productions have followed, including those at the American Stage Festival, Actorsingers Theatre, Fox Theater and in 2008 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
