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.

Quotes & Highlights
- “Plenty of laughs...rousing score. A great date-night musical. Within the heart of each of the remarkable group of knights and louts who make up the cast beats the soul of a rollicking, witty clown.” --<em>The Hollywood Reporter</em>
- “Outlandish production numbers...Sumptuous sets and costumes.” --<em>Variety</em>
- “Snazzy choreography...Monty Python has a way of coaxing you into its giddy time machine for a journey that, no matter how far-flung, usually ends up in the troupe’s delightfully familiar backyard of anachronistic zaniness.” --<em>Los Angeles Times</em>
