VIDEO: Barry Manilow, Bruce Sussman Reveal Details of New Musical HARMONY on 'Today'

Songwriters and long-time collaborators Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman stopped by this morning's Today show on NBC to reveal details about their exciting new musical HARMONY.

"It's easier to write for theater than for a pop song," Manilow explained. Adds Sussman, "It's a blank page in that you have a character and a situation and the song has to accomplish something." Check out their appearance below!

HARMONY will open the Atlanta's Alliance Stage 2013 - 2014 season on September 6, 2013. The musical tells the story of The Comedian Harmonists, a close harmony ensemble of six young men in 1930s Germany, who took the world by storm - from the stages of Europe to Carnegie Hall. The Comedian Harmonists' sophisticated music, paired with hilarious comedy, made them the brightest of stars, until the group's religious composition - a mixture of Jews and gentiles - put them on a collision course with history.
