Photos & Video: See Barry Manilow, Bruce Sussman & Warren Carlyle at Curtain Call for the Final Performance of HARMONY

Mentions were made of the show transferring to a larger Broadway stage.

Last night, Off-Broadway saw the closing night of the new musical Harmony at the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene. Joining the cast on stage at the curtain call were the creators, Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman, along with the director/choreographer Warren Carlyle. The evening also celebrated the announcement of the original cast recording, which was recorded this past weekend. Surprising the audience, Manilow appeared on stage with his co-creators and said, "I'm Barry Manilow...the Composer," and the house went wild. Cheers also erupted when mentions were made of the show transferring to a larger Broadway stage by a team of commercial producers led by Ken Davenport, with Sussman saying, "I'd like to think of today as only the end of the beginning!"
