New musical tells the story of Comedian Harmonists

The Comedian Harmonists were a proto-boy band in Weimar, Germany. Their harmonies and musical parodies made them famous worldwide, but the rise of the Nazis posed a grave danger to the group, whose members were evenly divided between Jews and Gentiles. Their story has been turned into a musical by Barry Manilow.

NPR’s Jeff Lunden reports.
