Hoping to find a new collaborator, award-winning composer Vernon Gersch
meets the offbeat yet accomplished Sonia Walsk at his luxury Manhattan apartment. Vernon has already written music to one of Sonia's lyrics. The song is exceptional and it's clear something wonderful can come from this partnership. Before too long, they start a romantic relationship, move in together, and then the trouble begins. Complemented by Neil Simon's comedic writing and the songwriting team of Hamlisch and Bayer Sager, They're Playing Our Song is a story about the joy of falling in love and creating art.

"...They’re Playing Our Song, the beloved near-biopic of storied composer Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line) and lyricist Carol Bayer Sager (“That’s What Friends Are For”) is now, sigh, a period piece, along with other remnants of the Carter administration. Hamlisch, like the musical’s fictional therapist Tannenbaum, has died. But, thankfully, this story and both of these artists’ delicious music live on."
