About this show

It's 1956, and three of America's great songwriters, Irving Berlin, Harold 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 Angels), the world-premiere play Coming Back Like a Song!, by Emmy Award-winner Lee Kalcheim (All in the Family), 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 such classic tunes as, respectively, "Cheek to Cheek" and "Always"; "Over the Rainbow" and "The Man That Got Away"; and "Swingin' on a Star" and "All the Way."
