Composer Ed Munger, 76, and lyricist Herb Weisburgh, 82, are a local songwriting duo who have been working together for 50 years. Their first and only stage work, the musical "Love in Firenze," is finally having a full production this week at The Addy, the intimate new theater at Proctors. Named after the city of Florence (Firenze), the show is a lyric romance set in New York City and Italy during the mid-1980s.
