They’re Playing our Song

A Piece for Two Performers

This piece is a comedy musical for two, ‘a musical theatre in a nutshell’, while even cars come on stage! With today’s New York as a background, this hilarious, but at times touching, story by Neil Simon narrates the birth of a great love between the composer Vernon Gersch and lyricist Sonia Walsk. He is charming, successful, wealthy and he has an Oscar. She is miserable, charming, clumsy, dressed in theater costumes but stubborn and confident of her talent. Sonia’s dream was to work with the famous composer. Proving once again the ancient theory that “The opposites are attracted”, this thrilling story of laughter and music, ends up in the unexpected finale.
