BWW Reviews: HARMONY Is Discordant in LA Debut
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...)

Photo Flash: Inside Opening Night of Barry Manilow's HARMONY at CTG/Ahmanson Theatre!
by BWW Special Coverage - Mar 13, 2014

Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman's 'Harmony,' a new musical, opened last night, Wednesday, March 12, 2014, at 8 p.m. at the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre and plays through April 13 (Previews began March 4). Directed by Tony Speciale, with music by Manilow and book and lyrics by Sussman, 'Harmony' tells the true story of The Comedian Harmonists, an ensemble of six young men in pre-WWII Germany who rose from unemployed street musicians to become world-famous entertainers, selling millions of records, starring in over a dozen films, and selling out the most prestigious concert halls around the world. Yet while The Comedian Harmonists' sophisticated music, paired with hilarious comedy, made them the brightest of stars, the group's mixture of Jews and non-Jews put them on a collision course with history. 'Harmony' is a co-production with the Alliance Theatre, Atlanta. Below, check out a look back at the opening night festivities, including the red carpet, curtain call, and after party! (more...)
