Synopsis: Harmony tells the true story of The Comedian Harmonists, a group of six talented young men, Jewish and gentile, who came together in 1920s Germany and took the world by storm with their signature blend of sophisticated close harmonies and uproarious stage antics. Together they 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 changed forever. Their incredible story inspired music industry legends Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman 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.
Ensemble: To play a variety of characters including:
FRITZ – Fritz Kruger, a nightclub owner. No-nonsense. A real businessman. Practical. Not easily swayed.

EINSTEIN – Albert Einstein, the one and only.
STANDARTENFUHRER-- A colonel in the SS and a fan of the group's. Sophisticated, well-educated, almost courtly.
OBERSTURMFUHRER-- A lieutenant in the SS. Matter-of-fact. A loyal, unquestioning follower.
STRAUSS – Richard Strauss, the composer. Gaunt, severe, but distinguished and worldly.
FRANKENHAUSER – Sandor Frankenhauser, a stressed-out film director.
DIETRICH – Marlene Dietrich at the dawn of her career.
