Harmony is the story of a little-known German performance group, the Comedian Harmonists, and their rise to become one of Europe’s most successful bands, and their fall at the hands of the Nazis in the World War II era. The show played off-Broadway with National Yiddish Theatre/Folksbiene last year. C
