What's It All About, Hal David?

PlayBlog   What's It All About, Hal David?
Hal David, the Oscar-winning lyricist who famously rhymed "pneumonia" with "phone ya" in the Broadway musical Promises, Promises, will discuss his songs and career in a Feb. 22 master class at New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.

The 6:45 PM chat between David and lyricist and NYU Steinhardt songwriting faculty member Phil Galdston, is open to the public. It will be held at the Frederick Loewe Theatre, 35 West 4th Street, in Manhattan. Admission is free. Reservations can be made by emailing steinhardt.boxoffice@nyu.edu.

David received an Academy Award for the song "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head." Known for his many hits with composer Burt Bacharach, his catalog includes "Alfie," "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?," "Walk on By," "What the World Needs Now is Love," "I Say a Little Prayer," "The Look of Love," "To All The Girls I've Loved Before" and "What's New Pussy Cat?"

The first Broadway revival of Promises, Promises begins March 28 at the Broadway Theater. Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth will sing "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" — the song about kissing a guy and catching pneumonia and how he'll never phone ya — with Sean Hayes.
