between us

Sometimes you have to wait for the good things. Personally, I know this to be true. The second marriage turned out to be the lifetime one. The child I couldn’t possibly live without came along at an improbably late date. And toast is so much better than slightly warm bread. Professionally, I also know this to be true. It took the Alliance a while to get that Tony, but that made it all the sweeter. The directing projects coming my way now challenge my whole being in ways the early ones never did. And, while it took time to get the planets to align, we’re producing Harmony here in Atlanta. And let me tell you, this is worth waiting for. The two guys responsible for this work know something about waiting as well. A few decades back, they had every good intention of writing musicals for the stage together but then this whole total domination of popular music thing happened and they had to wait. And even when they did finally get back to their original plan, the path forward was circuitous. But those guys — Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman — cared so deeply about telling this beautiful story that they kept pushing forward. I have to believe it’s tempting to rest on one’s laurels when your laurels are world class. But that’s not what they did. This is their proudest piece, this musical called Harmony, and they kept looking for the right place, the right time, the right team. And they’re here. Now. With a brilliant creative team and acting company. A final word. I’m perfectly happy to sing the praises of the Alliance (any old time, just ask) — but we’re just a part of the reason Mssrs. Manilow and Sussman brought their work here. You’re the other part. It’s out there in the wider world that Atlanta has become a remarkable place to develop new work. That our audiences embrace new art with enthusiasm, sophistication, and a deep sense of their role in creating a new history. Thank you for being our partner in getting this work here. Thanks for waiting with us.

HARMONY

Manilow-Sussman songwriting team celebrate a dream come true, finally!

By Bret Love Barry Manilow and longtime songwriting partner Bruce Sussman have dreamed of writing Broadway-style musicals together since they first met. More than 40 years later, the Alliance Theatre production of Harmony means that dream is at last coming true. As Sussman recalls, he was in grad school and working part time as a waiter while Manilow (who had written the score for off-Broadway’s The Drunkard) was gigging as an audition musician. The first song they wrote together — the American Bandstand theme — led to what’s

12

EncoreAtlantA.com

described as a “surprising left turn” into pop music. But theatre was always their first love. “What we loved about theatre,” Sussman says, “was the opportunity to write for characters and situations, and to have the musical numbers move the narrative along. These are the things that excite us.” “If it’s good, theatre is the most thrilling thing I’ve ever been involved with,” adds Manilow. “Everyone will tell you, that is what keeps us coming back. When the curtain goes up and that first song works, there’s just nothing like it.”


The duo’s remarkable success — Manilow had five albums on the Billboard charts simultaneously in the late 1970s and charted 25 Top 40 singles between 1974 and 1983 — delayed their dream. Then, in the late 1990s, Sussman read a New York Times review of The Comedian Harmonists, a four-hour documentary about a six-man vocal group that found fame and fortune in Germany until the Nazis banned them in 1934. He went to a screening of the film and was “blown away.” “The thing about this group is that they were so huge,” Manilow says. “They were the Beatles of their generation — the first boy band. How did we not know about this group? They were as funny as the Marx Brothers, as complicated musically as Manhattan Transfer, and we had never heard of them before. That’s the story!” The project challenged them. Sussman did research in Germany; the two spent a year studying late1920s and early-1930s music. They worked on the project off and on for nearly 15 years. When it came time to mount a stage production, they decided to focus on perfecting the show rather than raising millions of dollars to put it on Broadway.

“We called the main number and asked to speak with Susan Booth, whom we didn’t know,” Sussman continues. “Lord knows what they thought. We said, ‘Hi, it’s Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman.’ They connected us to Susan and she picked up the phone and said — and I quote — ‘Please tell me you’re calling about Harmony!’ By the time the call was done, we had a commitment.” “We’ve had such a rough road on this work,” Manilow confesses. “Susan read it and listened to the score, and she flipped out over it. It was such a beautiful phone call because she was so enthusiastic and said all the right things. For Bruce and I, it was so important to hear someone go off like that on a work that is so important to us. There was no doubt that this was the place we wanted to be.” Bret Love, an Atlanta-based freelancer, writes for more than a dozen national and international publications. He is the founder of the ecotourism/ conservation site GreenGlobalTravel.com, the national managing editor of INsite magazine and music editor for Georgia Music Magazine. He also does improv with Jackpie at Relapse Theatre.

“We wanted to go to a regional theatre because they’re about the work,” Sussman says, “and commercial considerations are on the back burner. We made a list of theatres we knew about, whose work we thought was terrific.” “We looked up the Alliance Theatre on the Internet!” Manilow interjects.

BARRY MANILOW (Music) is an internationally known star whose talents and success have reached every facet of entertainment. He has sold 80 million records. Rolling Stone called him “the Showman of our generation.” Manilow is a Grammy, Emmy and Tony award winner, as well as an Academy Award nominee. His theatrical roots go back to his days in the mailroom at CBS in New York, when at 18, he wrote the entire original score for a musical adaptation of the melodrama The Drunkard. The show ran off-Broadway for eight years. He made his film scoring debut in 1994 with the Warner Bros. animated film Thumbelina, for which he contributed songs written with his Harmony collaborator Bruce Sussman. His second animated feature, The Pebble and the Penguin (MGM), also featured songs by Manilow and Sussman. Copacabana – The Musical (written with Sussman) played a sold-out run in London’s West End for 18 months, toured the United States and is touring worldwide. Manilow was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002. He recently finished a sold-out six-week run in New York at the St. James Theatre. The show, called Manilow on Broadway, received glowing reviews and played to wildly enthusiastic audiences. He considers Harmony the most rewarding creative experience of his career. TONY SPECIALE (Director) is the founder of Plastic Theatre — conceiving, co-authoring and directing the world premiere of Unnatural Acts (Classic Stage Company, 2011, a Drama Desk nominee for outstanding play and director; GLAAD Media Award nominee for outstanding NY theatre Broadway & off-Broadway; off-Broadway Alliance Award nominee for best new play).

Harmony plays with the issues of identity, love, and hate against the gathering clouds of one of humanity’s greatest failures. As with any great theatre, Harmony mixes healthy doses of silliness and truth tinged with bitter sadness and ultimately binds together stories of lives with the only emotion that can last — love. Chance may guide our individual lives, but the world’s great tragedies were the result of decisions and most often inactions. Perhaps we in the here and now will learn from history; perhaps we will bring it into our minds when faced with our present day opportunities to bring greater harmony to our world. We will, I hope, we must.

rembering the

Comedian Harmonists Harmony is inspired by the true story of the Comedian Harmonists, a remarkable German singing group that was the toast of Europe from the late 1920s through the early years of World War II. The group’s musical brilliance and comic talent were a welcome diversion from the harsh war reparations, economic collapse, unemployment, decaying moral order and ceaseless political turmoil that enveloped Germany between the two World Wars. Over a few short years, this poor, unknown group rocketed to fame and international acclaim. It is sadly ironic that the triumph of this tightly knit vocal group coincided with the ascent of such devastating discord and dark political tyranny. Because of this timing, the Comedian Harmonists’ story, like those of so many people living in Germany at the time, has been nearly lost to history. In retelling their story, one is reminded of how difficult it is to see that time from the perspective of those living then. In 2013, the reality

of the Nazi horror seems painfully evident. However, until the late 1930s many Germans did not consider this struggling, extreme political faction a very big threat. For a people who had lived through so much political upheaval and social madness, the potential danger of this upstart party seemed remote. Even after the National Socialists began amassing power many German citizens, Jews and Gentiles alike, chose to stay in Germany. For many, the strife at home seemed less dangerous than immigrating to a foreign country. “In the beginning, few believed that Hitler would last long: it seemed impossible that such insane rule could. Nor were the Nazi organizations remarkable at first for their unity, or for their efficiency in enforcing regulations. Yellow stars and other markings like armbands, didn’t come until much later—not until

1941,” remembers one Berlin Jewess.  I didn’t leave until 1939, “ and almost right up until then restrictions were either not applied very strictly, or it was possible to circumvent them. I remember going to a ball, and at it an SA man in full uniform asked me to dance. What could I do? I danced with him. He was quite a young man. After we’d been dancing for a while I said to him. ‘Isn’t your racial instinct telling you anything about me?’ He blushed as red as a beetroot and said, ‘You mustn’t think we’re all like that, Miss.’ But that was 1934. -from A Dance Between The Flames b  y Anton Gill

The events of the Comedian Harmonists’ career are dramatized here largely as they occurred. Some license has been taken with regard to chronology and locale. Greater license has been taken with regard to the characterization of the women, and this for several reasons. Most notably, much less has been documented about them. Also, there were several more of them. Some of the Comedian Harmonists were married several times. Ruth, for example, is a composite character – though Erwin Bootz (“Chopin”) did indeed marry a Jewish woman during the early years of the Third Reich. We thought it appropriate, therefore, to give her a fictionalized name. Mary, on the other hand, is dramatized very much as we believe her to have been. The characters of historical merit – politicians, performers, men of science and letters – all indeed factored in the story. The uncanny meeting on the train, dramatized in our second act, happened. alliancetheatre.org

about the alliance theatre Founded in 1968, the Alliance Theatre has become the lead producing theatre in the Southeast, creating the powerful experience of shared theatre for diverse people on two stages. The Alliance values excellence, pursued with integrity and creativity, and achieved through collaboration. Reaching more than 200,000 patrons annually, the Alliance delivers programming that challenges adult and youth audiences to think critically and care deeply. Under the leadership of Susan V. Booth, the Alliance received the 2007 Regional Theatre Tony Award in recognition of excellence. The Alliance, known for its artistic standards and national role in creating significant theatrical works, has premiered more than 70 original productions including Tony winners The Color Purple by Alice Walker and Alfred Uhry’s The Last Night of Ballyhoo. It has a reputation for developing important American musicals with a track record of Broadway, touring and subsequent productions, including the world premieres of Sister Act, Come Fly Away, Bring It On and the U.S. premiere of Zorro, with music by the Gipsy Kings. The Alliance nurtures the careers of playwrights through its Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, producing a premiere for the winner and national networking opportunities for four finalists. The Acting Program and Education Department reaches nearly 50,000 students annually through performances, classes, drama camps and in-school initiatives. The Alliance creates and produces plays for young audiences at every age level: from the Collision Project, where high school artists create and perform new work based on a classic text, to Theatre for the Very Young, creating interactive shows for infants and toddlers.

These programs include GA Wolf Trap, which focuses on literacy skills for children in Pre-K – 2nd grade, and Dramaturgy K-12, in which students create research material that informs Alliance productions and prepares peer audiences. Twice recognized by the U.S. Education Department as leaders in arts education, these programs reflect the Alliance’s commitment to citywide arts access.
