They're Playing Our Song

They're Playing Our Song A musical by Neil Simon Directed by Alan Burrows Season 3 2011: 30 August to 17 September Lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager. Music by Marvin Hamslich. A story based on the real-life relationship between composer Marvin Hamlisch and lyricist Carole Bayer Sager. Vernon Gersch, a neurotic and successful composer finds a new lyricist, the lovably eccentric Sonia Walsk - a hopeless time-keeper who dresses in cast off theatre costumes. The unlikely pairing seems destined to falter off key; can Vernon's egotistical bachelor lifestyle cope with Sonia's ex-boyfriend and her multiple personalities? As their working relationship grows, so do their feelings for each other. To make sweet music all they have to do is work in harmony ...
