What do you get when you combine the music of Marvin Hamlisch, the lyrics of Carole Bayer Sager and a story from playwright, Neil Simon?  You get the “Holy Trinity” of talent creating the phenomenal musical, “They’re Playing Our Song.”

It’s really remarkable how over the years,  Act II Entertainment has nurtured and developed such amazing talent in stars like, Alfonso López and Kami Desilets from the hit, Avenue Q.   They  have now upped their game to direct, produce, and star in Neil Simon’s, They’re Playing Our Song. Alfonso and Kami put the show together in just one month, while still acting and singing in other shows 4 nights a week!

They’re Playing Our Song is a love story about a neurotic composer and a wacky lyricist who form a partnership and a tempestuous romance, expressing their thoughts in song both in their own solos and in songs where each is backed by two “alter egos. The  story based on the real-life relationship of Hamlisch and Sager, a wisecracking composer finds a new, offbeat lyricist, but initially the match is not one made in heaven. The two undergo a series of trials and overcome a number of hurdles before finding true love by the final curtain.

They’re Playing Our Song is essentially a two-character show. Vernon and Sonia are the sole characters on stage; each character has the beautiful songs of Hamlisch and Sager, as their inner voices. He writes the music, she writes the words, and they’re trying to make their lives as harmonious as their music.



Don’t miss the remaining performances of They’re  Playing Our Song, at Act II Entertainment at 7 pm on March 18, 21, 22, 25, 28 and 29.

Tickets to all shows can be purchased online at actiientertainment.com, at the box office, which opens at 10 am.

The Act II Entertainment STAGES complex is located on the corner of Insurgentes and Basilio Badillo on the South side of Puerto Vallarta. For more information, call (322) 222-1512, or follow Act II on Facebook.
