• International Women’s Day was just one day before Southampton’s Center Stage’s production of “Promises, Promises” opened last week. It was a fitting moment to sit back in your chair at the Southampton Cultural Center and muse over how women have always found ways to stand up for ourselves, while being throughly entertained by performers enthralled with a great Burt Bacharach score and a laugh-out-loud funny Neil Simon script. The show continues tonight for two more weeks. Read our full review online here.
