BWW Reviews: They're Playing Our (Grandparents) Song at Winter Park PlayhouseBWW Reviews: They're Playing Our (Grandparents) Song at Winter Park Playhouse
by Justin J Sacramone - Sep 19, 2014

Vernon Gersch, a 70's songwriter, is a punctual and sarcastic stick in the mud and Sonia Walsk practices candor and tardiness. So when he proposes to join forces with Sonia it is clear from the start that these two are going to make a comedically disastrous pairing. A score by Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sager and jokes by Neil Simon, THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG is a passe musical about the real-life relationship of Hamlisch and Sager. It is also The Winter Park Playhouse's third show of the season, conveniently starring the Company's Executive and Artistic Directors. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG Shines at Stages St. LouisBWW Reviews: THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG Shines at Stages St. Louis
by Chris Gibson - Jun 9, 2014

I've always been curious about THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG, but I'd never had the chance to see it before. You have to be intrigued by the fact that prolific playwright Neil Simon wrote the book, and also because Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sager, who are responsible, together and separately, for some of the biggest hits to come out of the 1970's and early 80's, wrote the score. So, I'm here to report that the current production by Stages St. Louis is a delightful romantic comedy filled with catchy tunes that would make a perfect "date night" for couples. (more...)
