Kristin Chenoweth’s “Promises, Promises” producers stand behind her

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: More reaction to Ramin Setoodeh’s controversial Newsweek article in which he implies it’s impossible for openly gay actors to be believable as straight characters – including Tony nominee Sean Hayes in his current role opposite Kristin Chenoweth in “Promises, Promises.”

Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, producers of the hit musical and such films as “Hairspray” and “Chicago,” have spoken out to The Advocate about the article.

“Ramin Setoodeh’s Newsweek article is so obviously self loathing that one can only pity the myopic world he lives in,” said Meron. “We share our friend Kristin Chenoweth’s outrage and can only marvel at the wonderful, true and yes, sexy relationship that she and Sean Hayes have on stage every night in Promises, Promises on Broadway.”
