Based on Billy Wilder's 1960 film The Apartment, Neil Simon took this classic to the stage with his book in 1968. This oft-performed classic follows the story of shrewd bachelor Chuck, whose apartment is often used by his coworkers at a Life Insurance Company for illicit affairs. Tired of being passed over by women and used by his co-workers, Chuck sets his sights on a waitress, Fran. When a colleague brings Fran to Chuck's apartment, the encounter ends disastrously and Fran attempts suicide. This tale about the quest for love and self-worth in the tangles of the city and modern life endures with the exceptional music by the unsurpassed Burt Bacharach.
