But when the woman he loves falls for his alter ego, will Julius find the courage to win her back from his hipper self?

  1. Dear Mr. Hamlisch,
    Just a note to say that I thoroughly enjoyed The Nutty Professor this past weekend! I thought your songs really sparkled. Smart, funny, clever, tuneful and emotional. Bravo!

    I hope that the show goes all the way to Broadway and becomes a big hit!

    Kind Regards,

  2. Maestro, please!
    I know never issued music for “War between men and women”.
    I love the main title too much!!!!!!! And I would like to listen to it free and without f/x or noises.
    If there is a way to find it, I pray you to tell me.
    Anyway, please, send me a little file of this theme only!!!!
    Thank’you very much. Massimo Cardinaletti (Fabriano — Italy)
