The cast album of the currently running musical “Harmony” has been released on Ghostlight Records. Produced by Barry Manilow and co-produced by Lawrence Manchester, the album was released digitally on Aug. 31 (prior to the musical’s Broadaway run). As of Jan. 26, the album is now available in CD form.

Featuring music by Manilow, lyrics by Bruce Sussman and orchestrations by Doug Walter, the physical cast album contains an additional song not included in the digital release: “Where Does Time Go?” Performed on the album by Manilow himself, the song originally appeared in Act 1 of “Harmony,” but was cut from the Broadway production.

The album features performances by Chip Zien as Rabbi, Sean Bell as Bobby, Danny Kornfeld as Young Rabbi, Zal Owen as Harry, Eric Peters as Erich, Blake Roman as Chopin,  Steven Telsey as Lesh, Sierra Boggess as Mary and Julie Benko as Ruth. Rounding out the company are Zak Edwards, Bruce Landry, RhonniRose Mantilla, Daniel Z. Miller, Benjamin H. Moore, Andrew O’Shanick, Constantine Pappas, Kayleen Seidl, Allison Semmes, Bronwyn Tarboton, Kate Wesler, Stuart Zagnit, Lee Zarrett, Dan Hoy, Matthew Mucha and Kyle Stone. 

Directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, “Harmony” sheds light on the career and lives of the Comedian Harmonists, a group of six close-harmony singers, whose stardom was pushed into obscurity by the Nazis. The musical began previews on Oct. 18, 2023, before opening on Nov. 13 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. The production recently announced a Feb. 4 closing date.

“Harmony” is produced on Broadway by Ken Davenport, Sandi Moran and Garry Kief.
