Manilow, Cast & Creatives Congregate For HARMONY Rehearsal
International pop icon Barry Manilow is currently in rehearsal with his new stage musical HARMONY, written with bookwriter/lyricist Bruce Sussman, and a backstage look at the goings-on down in Atlanta prior to the brand new musical's big premiere next month has now been granted by the talented troubadour himself via Facebook.
Manilow posted a shot of the red rehearsal sign adorning a door at Atlanta's ALLIANCE THEATRE as well as a group shot of the entire cast and creative team in action while attending a read-through of the war-torn, 1940s-set musical earlier this week.
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."
