Some Lovers opens at the Old Globe

Some Lovers, Burt Bacharach’s long-awaited new musical—his first since Promises, Promises—opened at the Old Globe Theater in San Diego on Dec. 7.

With book and lyrics by Steven Sater (the Tony and Grammy Award winning writer of Spring Awakening), Some Lovers is an original musical inspired by  the O. Henry story “The Gift of the Magi,” telling the story of estranged lovers brought together through memories of the past.
