Thanks! Philadelphia, PA – for producing the Musical “They’re Playing Our Song” at The Adrienne Theatre

Philadelphia, PA – What happens when a wisecracking mega-successful composer takes on a new lyricist—a kooky, insecure, incurable romantic, still bruised by a recently ended love affair?  Initially the match is one not made in heaven, but anyone who has ever seen a musical knows, they are destined to end up together.

(“They’re Playing Our Song” previewed April 9 and April 10, opened on April 11 and ran through April 26 at the AdrienneTheatre’s SkyBox, 2030 Sansom Street.)
