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 through a blend of sophisticated close harmonies and uproarious stage antics until their inclusion of Jewish singers put them on a collision course with history.
The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene will present Harmony in the newly renovated Edmond J. Safra Hall at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. NYTF previously produced Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish, which won multiple honors including a 2019 Drama Desk Award. Harmony was originally scheduled to be presented in 2020, prior to illness within the creative team necessitating a delay which was exacerbated by the pandemic.
NYTF will present Harmony in English, with previews beginning March 23, opening April 13, and the production running to May 8. Tony winner Warren Carlyle will direct and choreograph.
