About the Play:

They're Playing Our Song is a full-length musical comedy with book by Neil Simon, music by Marvin Hamlisch, and lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager. A neurotic composer and a wacky lyricist form a partnership and a tempestuous romance, expressing their thoughts in song both in their own solos and in songs where each is backed by three "alter egos."

They're Playing Our Song is a romantic musical comedy about an established composer who develops a relationship with a zany female lyricist, not unlike Carole Bayer Sager. At work and at play, this winning couple's professional and personal successes and difficulties lead to one hilarious scene after another. Professionally, their relationship works beautifully-but ultimately leads to conflict on the home front. Of course, there's a happy ending. Based on the real-life relationship of Hamlisch and show lyricist Carole Bayer Sager, America's premier funny man and the Tony Award-winning composer of A Chorus Line collaborated on this hit musical.

They're Playing Our Song had a pre-Broadway engagement in 1978 at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. It premiered in 1979 at the Imperial Theatre and ran for more than three years on Broadway. The play is regularly performed in regional repertory, college, dinner, and community theatre productions.

Cast: 1 woman, 1 man, with ensemble

What people say:

"It is fun and it is funny, full of blithe good humor, hilarious jokes and witty, pointed characterizations...The concept of the musical is absolutely beguiling... Simon has gotten himself another odd couple even odder than his first and is at his most sprightly and acidly comic." — New York Post

"Engaging light entertainment." — New York Daily News

About the Playwright:

Neil Simon (1927-2018) was America's most prolific playwright. He had dozens of plays and nearly as many major motion pictures produced. He was showered with more Academy and Tony nominations than any other writer, and is the only playwright to have four Broadway productions running simultaneously. His plays have been produced in dozens of languages, and have been blockbuster hits from Beijing to Moscow. His true success, however, is in his unique way of exposing something real in the American spirit.
