Stage212 — LaSalle, IL — MUSICAL: THEY’RE PLAYING OUR SONG:
“America’s premier funny man and the Tony Award-winning composer of A Chorus Line (Marvin Hamlisch) collaborated on this hit musical, a funny, romantic show about an established composer and his relationship with an aspiring young female lyricist, (not unlike Carole Bayer Sager.) Professionally, their relationship works beautifully-but ultimately leads to conflict on the home front. Of course, there’s a happy ending.
This Stage212 Production was directed by Joe Ennenbach and Produced by Scot Smigel & Dixie Schroeder.
The Musical score by composer Marvin Hamlisch, Lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager and book by Neil Simon.
