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.

Parents, it's wonderful if you want to expose your child to ballet, but please remember that this is -not- children's theater. It's rude and disturbs everyone around you if you spend the performance explaining to your child everything that is going on onstage.info • Nov 25 2013 star this tip starred

Mathew Bourne's latest and last trio of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet's does not disappoint. From the costumes to the liberties he takes with the classic story, Bourne's breathes fresh air into a piece reminding us that dance and classical music are to be enjoyed and are not antiques to be preserved like museum pieces. Bourne takes this classic ballet off the shelf, dusted it off and presented in a new light to a new audience who will - thanks to his brilliance - fall in love all over again with Tchaikovsky's genius.
The Ahmanson is a great venue and although not the traditional stage for ballets, it served exceptionally well for this story. The parking was convenient but be prepared to have $9 on you (preferably cash) and try to find seating in the Mezzanine level. We went on a Thursday night and traffic from Glendale was not bad. We left 45 minutes before the show and arrived with almost 20 minutes to spare.
