Tony Award winner Karen Ziemba, Christiane Noll, Carol Woods and Jason Graae will salute late composer Marvin Hamlisch in They’re Playing His Songs at the Cape Playhouse this summer.
Created and directed by Tony Award winner David Zippel (City of Angels), who collaborated with Hamlisch on The Goodbye Girl, the world-premiere revue will run June 24-July 6. Christopher Marlowe will musical direct.
They’re Playing His Songs promises tunes from Hamlisch’s prolific career, as well as film clips of Hamlisch playing and singing his material.
Expect “The Way We Were,” as well as material from “The Sting,” A Chorus Line, The Goodbye Girl and more.
The cast features Tony winner Ziemba (Steel Pier, Curtains, Contact), Tony nominee Noll (Chaplin, Ragtime), Graae (A Grand Night for Singing) and Woods (Follies).
An earlier version of the piece premiered at the McCallum Theater in Palm Desert, CA, in January. Ziemba, Noll and Graae were part of the cast.
