VIDEO: Barry Manilow, Bruce Sussman Reveal Details of New Musical HARMONY on 'Today'
"It's easier to write for theater than for a pop song," Manilow explained. Adds Sussman, "It's a blank page in that you have a character and a situation and the song has to accomplish something." Check out their appearance below!
HARMONY will open the Atlanta's Alliance Stage 2013 - 2014 season on September 6, 2013. The musical tells the story of The Comedian Harmonists, a close harmony ensemble of six young men in 1930s Germany, who took the world by storm - from the stages of Europe to Carnegie Hall. The Comedian Harmonists' sophisticated music, paired with hilarious comedy, made them the brightest of stars, until the group's religious composition - a mixture of Jews and gentiles - put them on a collision course with history.
