 Anthony Nufrio Jr.: They're Playing Our Song by Neil Simon and Marvin Hamlisch IS LONG OVERDUE FOR A REVIVAL. Plus Sutton performed in the concert version last year.

In 2010 Foster and columnist Seth Rudetsky joined forces for a concert version of the musical that introduces audiences to wisecracking composer Vernon Gersch, who takes on the kooky and offbeat lyricist Sonia Walsk as his new collaborator. Their initial match is a professional success but a personal disaster. As the two pop songwriters explore their relationship during their rise to success throughout the show, backup singers materialize to sweeten their songs.
