Benefiting from a Neil Simon script and a winning turn by Andrea McArdle,
The Wick Theatre is betting its older doggedly mainstream audience will be won over by this effectively sweet but decidedly insubstantial romantic musical comedy.
When 13-year-old Andrea McArdle exploded across the country, the moniker Broadway Baby recognized the talent powering her performance as Annie singing the iconic “Tomorrow.” Now, about to headline They’re Playing Our Song at the Wick Theatre, her voice and demeanor reflect four decades working steadily to consistent acclaim but never getting caught up in a cyclone of similar proportions.
Margot Moreland and Oscar Cheda’s presence in Boca Raton Theatre Guild’s production of They’re Playing Our Song is, indeed, more than enough reason to see this tuneful but far from iconic 1978 musical by Neil Simon, Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer-Sager.
