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.
