Nominated for four Tony Awards and inspired by Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sager’s real-life romance, They’re Playing Our Song chronicles the ups and downs of a successful composer and an inexperienced, but very talented, lyricist, who fall in love. Professionally, this duo is a major success, but privately, this couple’s conflict leads to one hilarious song after another. Directed by Tony Award-Nominated Gregg Edelman (Broadway: City of Angels, 1776, Into The Woods; BTG: What We May Be, Coming Back Like A Song!), They’re Playing Our Song is a romantic and delightful musical treat.
They’re Playing Our Song features a book by Tony Award-Winner Neil Simon (Barefoot In The Park, The Odd Couple); music by Pulitzer Prize and Tony, Academy, Grammy and Emmy Award-Winner Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line, Sweet Smell of Success; Film: The Sting) and lyrics by Tony, Academy and Grammy Award-Winner singer-songwriter, Carole Bayer Sager.
