Take a look behind the scenes of Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman's long in-development musical HARMONY as it prepares for its highly anticipated debut at Atlanta's Alliance Theater in a few short weeks byway of a handful of new shots recently released.

With a score by Manilow, featuring a book and lyrics by Bruce Sussman and direction by Tony Speciale, HARMONY is Manilow's first original stage musical with an eye set torwards Broadway following the highly anticipated bow of the show this September at the ALLIANCE THEATRE in Atlanta, Georgia.

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 opens September 6 at the ALLIANCE THEATRE in Atlanta. A second production at the Ahmanson Theatre in California is planned for March 2014, as well.
