National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene has announced full casting for “Harmony: A New Musical” written by the legendary singer-songwriter Barry Manilow and his longtime collaborator Bruce Sussman. The production, which will run March 23 until May 8 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, will be directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Warren Carlyle.
Harmony tells the true story of the Comedian Harmonists, an ensemble of six talented young men in 1920s Germany who took the world by storm with their signature blend of sophisticated close harmonies and uproarious stage antics, until their inclusion of Jewish singers put them on a collision course with history.
The cast will feature Sierra Boggess, Chip Zien, Sean Bell, Zal Owen, Eric Peters Blake Roman, Steven Telsey, Jessie Davidson and Ana Hoffman. The ensemble includes Elise Frances Daniells, Zak Edwards, Abby Goldfarb, Eddie Grey, Shayne Kennon, Benjamin Harold Moore, Matthew Mucha, Tori Palin, Barrett Riggins, Kayleen Seidl, Andrew O'Shanick, Nancy Ticotin, and Kate Wesler.
