"Some Lovers" follows the story of a couple caught between their present and their past. With an original story by Steven Sater ("Spring Awakening") and all new music from the legendary Burt Bacharach, this captivating tale leaps across time as an unforgettable melody transports these lovers back to their younger selves.
"Some Lovers" marks Burt Bacharach's first new score in 50 years. Bacharach wrote the score for the 1968 musical Promises, Promises (with Hal David), which won two Tony Awards. He also wrote music for films, winning two Oscars and a Grammy for his work on "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (with Hal David). He has won three Academy Awards and eight Grammy Awards throughout his career. In 2015, Rolling Stone ranked Bacharach at 32 in their list of 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time.
