Lucie Arnaz, Robert Klein. Musical: They’re Playing Our Song

 

Rush performed in the role of “Vernon Gersch” and joined Sharriese Hamilton in Porchlight Revisits They’re Playing Our Song, a romantic musical comedy about the affair (both professional and romantic) of a wisecracking composer and an aspiring, offbeat lyricist.
Creatively, their relationship works great, but personal trials and tribulations lead them toward finding a new way to make harmonious music together
in this laugh-a-minute romantic charmer. The show featured musical hits “Fallin’,” “If He Really Knew Me” and “Just For Tonight.”

Anastasia Arnold, (voice of Sonia Walsk); Kiersten Frumkin, (voice of Sonia Walsk); Yando Lopez, (voice of Vernon Gersch); Billy Rude, (voice of Vernon Gersch); Tyler Symone, (voice of Sonia Walsk) and Koray Tarhan, (voice of Vernon Gersch).
