Barry Manilow Reflects On HARMONY Tryout & Looks Ahead

Popular music icon Barry Manilow reflects on the recent out-of-town tryout of his new musical HARMONY and looks ahead to the future for the project - and his own forthcoming endeavors - as part of a new blog post on his official Facebook page.

Manilow writes, "Well, everything has calmed down since "Harmony" finished its run in Atlanta. Bruce and I couldn't be happier with the response the show has gotten. My deepest thanks to all of you for your encouragement and the beautiful notes you've written about the show. "Harmony" has been a huge mountain to climb, but we never gave up on it. We're prouder of our show now than we ever were. Now that the road shows are done and "Harmony" is on hiatus, I'm in the middle of creating two new albums."

So, what's next for HARMONY following its most recent successful tryout? Well, we will have to see what the next production, planned for the Ahmanson in California early next year, will bring!

The official synopsis of HARMONY is as follows: "HARMONY tells the compelling story of the Comedian Harmonists. They were the first sensational boy band: six talented young men who came together in 1920s Germany and took the world by storm with their signature blend of sophisticated close harmonies and uproarious stage antics. The Comedian Harmonists sold millions of records, starred in a dozen films and packed the houses of the most prestigious concert halls around the globe until the world they knew forever changed. Their amazing story inspirEd Barry and Bruce to create a spectacular new musical with an original score that celebrates this extraordinary group of friends and ensures their quest for true harmony in the most discordant chapter of human history will never be forgotten."

HARMONY opened September 6 at the ALLIANCE THEATRE in Atlanta and recently ended its run there. A second production at the Ahmanson Theatre in California is planned for March 2014, as well.
