It’s 1956, and three of America’s great songwriters, Irving BerlinHarold Arlen and Jimmy Van Heusen, are at a crossroads in their lives; rock ‘n roll is now king, and their careers could be over. Directed by Tony Award-nominated Gregg Edelman (City of Angels1776Into The Woods; BTG: Arsenic and Old LaceConstellations), Emmy Award-winner Lee Kalcheim’s (All in the Family) World Premiere, Coming Back Like a Song! follows the story of the three old friends and music icons on Christmas Eve in New York City, as they drink, fight and sing. Berlin, Arlen and Van Heusen have written classic tunes such as, Berlin’s “Cheek to Cheek” and “Always;” Arlen’s “Over the Rainbow” and “The Man That Got Away;” to Van Heusen’s “Swingin’ On a Star” and “All the Way” and many more. We dare you not to sing along.
