I`d still like to see (or hear) a revival on NY Animals - even a "workshop" presentation similar to that given Some Lovers at Lincoln Center. To my ears the score for NYA was stronger, yet it seems to have been stuffed down the memory hole.

In the same year that London saw another revival of Promises, Promises this is more good news. I think that 'Every Other Hour' and 'Hush' from the show are two of the better songs Bacharach has composed in the last twenty years or so.

Having just booked for two BBC Proms concerts in early September featuring four blockbuster works by Prokofiev and Shostakovich, this show running about the same time might just be the perfect anti-dote. It's a shame in a way that 'Some Lovers' is slso set at the time of Christmas as was 'Promises, Promises'.

Going by the length of the show's run and the ticket prices, it looks to me that this will be a staged reading rather than a full blown production. Having seen dozens of shows put on this way courtesy of Lost Musicals, a London based company specialising in the performance of shows that have rarely if ever been produced in the West End, it's a perfectly agreeable way of experiencing a musical, especially if you're there primarily to hear the score.
