Tharp is not acting out the lyrics on stage, as one commentator intoned: She's merely taken the names, the vague, early 1960s Long Island setting and the initial ages (in Act One they're teenagers) of her main characters from four Joel songs: "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant," "Movin' Out," "Why, Judy, Why" and "James."
