PLAYBILL PICKS: The Stage's Ten Greatest Christmas Scenes
25 Dec 2013
Promises, Promises This Burt Bacharach-Hal David musical about urban heartbreak is set against a backdrop of holiday merriment. The star-crossed hero and heroine of the story — ladder-climbing junior exec C.C. Baxter and elevator girl Fran Kubelik — aren't having a particularly good time at the office Christmas party, or at the Greenwich Village dive where C.C. retreats directly afterwards. But the songs featured in those scenes— "Turkey Lurkey Time" and "A Fact Can Be a Beautiful Thing" — are a hoot. And you could find worse Christmas Eve company that barfly floozy Marge MacDougall.
Baayork Lee, Donna McKechnie and Margo Sappington, doing "Turkey Lurkey Time" in the original Broadway production of Promises, Promises.
