Barry Manilow returns to his first love, writing musicals, with the much-anticipated Harmony. This musical story of the world's first hit boy band is based on the true tale of six talented young Germans who came together in the 1920s and took the world by storm. With a signature blend of sophisticated close harmonies and hilarious stage antics, the Comedian Harmonists were an actual group that sold millions of records, starred in films and packed the prestigious concert halls around the globe -- until the rise of Nazi Germany split them apart. Inspired by the story, Manilow and his co-creator, writer-lyricist Bruce Sussman, created this musical with an original score that celebrates this extraordinary group of friends and their quest for true harmony in one of the most discordant periods of world history.

In an audience full of parents with little kids, I took my mom to see Mary Poppins, and it was wonderful. Beautiful voices, creative and colorful sets, old favorite songs along with some new songs and scenes (only one of which didn't really work for me). There were also a few fun surprises. Highly recommended! (Also, for parents with small children, the Ahmanson provides booster seats.) A special thank you to Goldstar for helping me get easily accessible seats for my mother who has some difficulty getting around. They answered my request within minutes, contacted the box office, and solved a problem that I was really concerned about.
