“Harmony,” a Broadway-bound musical written by Barry Manilow and Bruce Sussman, unexpectedly shut down production yesterday morning after it became apparent that its producers were millions of dollars short of capitalizing the show.
Brent Peek, the production’s general manager, broke the news to a stunned cast about 10 a.m. at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts on West 43rd Street, where “Harmony” was rehearsing. The show was to have started performances at the Forrest Theater in Philadelphia on Dec. 2, with an eye toward a Broadway opening next spring.
“They’re in complete shock,” said David Warren, the director. “They were ready to start this thing, and now it’s over.” [The New York Times]
