by Timothy Kuryak - Mar 13, 2014

The Comedian Harmonists, an internationally famous, all-male German harmony ensemble that performed between 1928 and 1934, who became one of the most successful musical groups in Europe before World War II, is the basis for this original musical from Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Barry Manilow's HARMONY Finally Gets a Deserved Staging at the Ahmanson
by Don Grigware - Mar 13, 2014

The big question surrounding the fate of Harmony: Is Broadway ready for another musical about the turbulent 30s and Nazi occupation of Germany? With The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof (although set in Russia and at an earlier time, it's still about the plight of the Jews) and Cabaret firmly planted in our minds as three of the greatest musicals ever written about the Nazis, do we need one more? Barry Manilow has been trying desperately for over 10 years to get his Harmony, the true story about the Comedian Harmonists, onstage. Now at the Ahmanson through April 13, Harmony is beautifully produced and mounted, exceedingly well-performed and a thoroughly moving story about 6 singers/performers whose careers and lives were interrupted and controlled by Naziism. The answer to the big question is a shaky maybe. (more...)

BWW Reviews: MAURICE HINES IS TAPPIN' THRU LIFE at Arena Stage, Offers Something for Everyone
by Benjamin Tomchik - Nov 23, 2013

When the legendary performer Lena Horne told Maurice Hines to 'Love them [the audience], make it real' you can tell he took that advice to heart when conceiving Tappin' Thru Life currently playing at Arena Stage. For Tappin' Thru Life seems determined not only to love the audience, but to entertain them, and it succeeds at doing just that! While Tappin' Thru Life does have some flaws, it's hard to find anyone who isn't won over by Hines showmanship, humor, timing and above all else, talent. (more...)

Review Roundup: Alliance Theatre's HARMONY
by Review Roundups - Sep 18, 2013

Barry Manilow and his lyrical partner Bruce Sussman are taking a swing at musicals again with Harmony. The show is based on a documentary that follows a Jewish actor in Berin that recruited five singers, 2 Jewish and 3 non-Jewish, to form a musical group that offered a very different and unprecedented live performance. They combined complex 6 part harmonies, vocal imitation of instruments, and even physical comedy onstage. The Comedian Harmonists, is what they called themselves, became a musical sensation in the late 1920s but coincidentally, their rise to fame coincided with Hitler's rise to power along with his restrictions against the Jewish artists in Germany.
