Mad Men With Groovy Music

Post  Rodger on Thu Jun 03, 2010 4:03 pm



My boss handed me and a colleague freebies to the Broadway show, Promises, Promises.
So last night it was theater night with my wife, my colleague and his battle ax.

Taken as a whole, “Promises, Promises” feels like a puppy-dog imitation of "Mad Men", the sharply observed AMC television series, soon to start its fourth season, about the dog-eat-dog, sexist and lascivious corporate world of the early 1960’s. “Promises, Promises” was there first, of course, opening on Broadway in 1968 and running for three years, telling the tawdry tale of a low-level corporate employee in the accounting department who lends out his apartment to executives for their extramarital affairs, until he discovers that one of those affairs is with the woman he loves.

Kristin Chenowith is no Christina Hendricks, but she sure can sing those Burt Bacharach songs.

Indeed! Cheno is a little bird in comparison to the well endowed Hendricks.

I look at it this way. Krisitin's the appetizer and Christina is the entre.

The Roots - "Dear God 2.0"
Def JamAside from the brow-raising line "If everything is made in China are we Chinese?" Black
Thought straight ripped this track.

The Roots just have a way of making the unbearable seem Def. Cool
