The Wick Theatre launches their fourth season with the romantic musical comedy, Theyâ€™re Playing Our Song, starring Broadway legend Andrea McArdle. The musical features a book by Neil Simon and showcasesÂ Carol Bayer Sager’s lyrics and the music of Marvin Hamlisch. The plot is based on the real-life relationship of Hamlisch and Sager, and follows the duo as they undergo a series of trials before finding true love by the final curtain.
â€œI am thrilled that Andrea McArdle is here to kick off our fourth season,â€ said Managing Executive Producer, Marilynn A. Wick. â€œWhile we all know her from her star-making role as a child in Annie, Andrea has become one of the theatreâ€™s most respected leading ladies, having received acclaim forÂ roles in such diverse productions as Les Miserables, Starlight Express, Cabaret, Mame, The Vagina Monologues and so many more.â€
Theyâ€™re Playing Our Song debuted on Broadway in 1979, and received multiple Tony Award nominations. The musical is essentially a two-character show, however, each character has a three-personÂ Greek chorusÂ acting as their inner voices.
Andrea McArdle(Sonia Walsk) stars alongside James Clow (Vernon Gersch) who returns to The Wick where he played Cornelius in Hello Dolly last season.Â Joining them is an all-star cast of â€œvoicesâ€ including Clay Cartland, Amanda Frennier, Victoria Lauzun, Mallory Newbrough, Terry Farley and James Skiba.
