Footage from the Alliance Theatre's production of Harmony - A New Musical, music by Barry Manilow and book & lyrics by Bruce Sussman. Harmony 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.The Alliance production runs September 6 - October 6, 2013. Tickets are available www.alliancetheatre.org/harmony.
