A musical by Neil Simon and Burt Bacharach. Directed by John Ambrosino and staged by the Animus Ensemble. Synopsis: Chuck Baxter loves Fran Kubelik. Fran Kubelik loves J.D Sheldrake. J.D. Sheldrake loves Chuck Baxter...for his apartment. What do you get when you fall in love? - a funny, quirky musical from Burt Bacharach and Neil Simon about navigating the office party, climbing the corporate ladder, and listening to your heart. Bacharach's brassy score propels the sympathetic story of a young American who finds it easier to pursue promotions than true love.
