A to Z Musicals ~ ♬ “T” is for THEY’RE PLAYING OUR SONG

t

They’re Playing Our Song is a 1979 musical with book by Neil Simon, lyrics by Carole Bayer Sager, and music by Marvin Hamlisch.

Based on the real-life relationship of Hamlisch and Sager, the show portrays a wisecracking composer teamed up with a new, offbeat lyricist. The match isn’t a good one at first, but after the two overcome a number of hurdles they find true love by the final curtain.

They’re Playing Our Song opened on Broadway on February 11, 1979 where it ran for 1,082 performances. It starred Robert Klein and Lucie Arnaz (in her Broadway debut). It received four Tony Award nominations.

Here are Robert Klein and Lucie Arnaz performing at the 1979 Tony Awards (with an introduction by Henry Fonda!):

Haven’t heard of this one, Martha. Sounds lovely.

Oh! This sounds like one I’d really have enjoyed! Never heard of it though. I’ve been waiting for T to roll around to see if you’ve ever heard of the musical “Two by Two?” 😀

I really love waking up to a song ❤ Nice job, Mz. Martha ❤

Hi Martha – it’s a good standard isn’t it – and obviously won over many friends … I expect it’s performed in schools, campuses and amateur organisations … cheers Hilary
