Reprise Theatre Company artistic director Jason Alexander will star in that theatre company's upcoming production of Marvin Hamlisch, Carole Bayer Sager and Neil Simon's They're Playing Our Song.

Tony nominee Lonny Price will direct the production, which will run Sept. 28-Oct. 10 at UCLA's Freud Playhouse. Additional casting will be announced at a later time. They're Playing Our Song features a score by Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sager and a book by Neil Simon. The musical, according to press notes, is described as such: "When Vernon Gersch (Jason Alexander), an established and wisecracking composer, takes on the kooky and offbeat lyricist Sonia Walsk as his new collaborator, their initial match is a professional success but a personal disaster. Together, the two undergo a series of trials and overcome a number of hurdles before finding true love by the final curtain."

The musical opened at Broadway's Imperial Theatre in 1979; it received four Tony nominations, including one for Best Musical. Song titles include "I Still Believe in Love," "Just for Tonight," "If He really Knew Me," "Working it Out," "Falling" and the title tune.
