Tony Award winner Sutton Foster and actor-musician-Playbill.com columnist Seth Rudetsky joined forces Aug. 30 for a concert version of They're Playing Our Song to benefit the Actors Fund.
Directed and choreographed by Denis Jones, They're Playing Our Song also featured Amber Efé, Kaitlyn Davidson and Alex Ellis as the Voices of Sonia Walsk and Tyler Maynard, Matt Loehr and Jesse Nager as the Voices of Vernon Gersch.
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 (Seth Rudetsky), an established and wisecracking composer, takes on the kooky and offbeat lyricist Sonia Walsk (Sutton Foster) 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 starring Lucie Arnaz and Robert Klein. The production received four Tony nominations, including one for Best Musical.
