Theatre Review: ‘Harmony’ at Alliance Theatre
Atlanta In Town - over 3 years
Harmony at the Alliance Theatre (Photo by Greg Mooney) By Manning Harris fmanningh@gmail.com Everything about the Alliance Theatre’s new musical “Harmony” is huge:  the big name creators (Barry Manilow, music; Bruce Sussman, book and lyrics), the cast, the glorious set and costumes, the fine orchestra, the riveting true story it tells.  “Harmony” will run only until October 6, and although a little fine-tuning here and there is inevitable, this show feels Broadway-bound, despite the gentle demurring from its creators.  If you want to see it, I wouldn’t delay getting tickets. “Harmony” tells the story of the Comedian Harmonists, a German sextet who rose to international fame in the late 1920′s and early 1930′s.  Unfortunately, their ascent coincided with the rise of the Nazis; and the Harmonists had Jewish and non-Jewish performers.  This was unacceptable, and by 1934 the group was banned. What interested Mr. Manilow, as Bret Love reported in the program, was that “they were ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Elaine Taylor
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 2012
    Age 68
    In 2012 Plummer identified "the key to lasting marriage" as "staying out of each other's hair" and reflected that while he and Taylor quarreled a lot, they "always end up in laughter which saves the day".
    More Details Hide Details More generally, he has described Taylor's positive influence on his life as follows: a combination of Edith Cavell and Julia Child... a nurse and a cook. I feel guilty sometimes that I denied her a wonderful life, that she's wasted it on some terrible old ham. She could have married a duke or a prince! And she knows it. But being British, you see, she never complains. She's very well trained. Taylor is a gourmet French cook and she and Plummer renovated or designed houses in West Hollywood, Grasse and London before settling in Weston.
  • 2010
    Age 66
    Taylor and Plummer reached their ruby wedding (40th) anniversary in 2010.
    More Details Hide Details Since the 1970s Plummer and Taylor have lived on a rambling English style estate at Weston, Connecticut. Taylor has no children of her own; her stepdaughter is the actress Amanda Plummer (born 1957), Plummer’s daughter from his first marriage to Tammy Grimes. Over the years she appears to have moderated aspects of Plummer's behaviour. A few months after their marriage, Alan Bennett remarked wryly to Kenneth Tynan that Plummer was "his own worst enemy—but only just," while Plummer's own autobiography almost forty years later was entitled In Spite of Myself.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1970
    Age 26
    Taylor and Plummer were married in Montreal, Quebec on 2 October 1970.

  • 1969
    Age 25
    In 1969 Taylor met Christopher Plummer, best known at the time for his role as Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music (1965), while they were both filming Lock Up Your Daughters in Kilkenny, Ireland.
    More Details Hide Details Plummer was almost fourteen years older, twice divorced, and had recently been partnering Richard Harris' ex-wife Elizabeth Rees-Williams. Taylor's usually "mousy" hair, which was tinted red on location, is said to have appealed to Plummer. For her part, Taylor, who initially thought Plummer "a most conceited prig", agreed to meet him again in London provided that he reduced his consumption of alcohol.
    Following her appearance as Cloris in the 1969 film Lock Up Your Daughters, Taylor appeared in two more films, Michael Winner's The Games and the Warren Mitchell comedy All the Way Up (both 1970).
    More Details Hide Details She also starred in an episode of ITC's Jason King ("A Royal Flush", 1972) and various televised dramas for the BBC, including Trelawny of the Wells (as Rose Trelawny, 1972) and Kingsley Amis' Dr. Watson and the Darkwater Hall Mystery (as Emily, Lady Fairfax alongside Edward Fox's Watson, 1974). In the mid-1980s she returned to television in America in The George McKenna Story (1986) and Sharing Richard (1988), and co-produced the 1987 film Love Potion. Taylor’s most recent appearance is thought to have been in the TV film Till Death Us Do Part (1992) (based on a true crime and unrelated to the long-running British TV comedy series of the same name).
  • 1968
    Age 24
    In 1968 she took the modish role of Victoria Ponsonby in the comedy film Diamonds for Breakfast - in Leslie Halliwell's view, a "yawning comedy caper yarn embellished with sex and slapstick" - that featured also Marcello Mastroianni, in his first English language film, and Rita Tushingham.
    More Details Hide Details In the same year she played Shirley Blair, pregnant fiancée of Tom Taggart (Christian Roberts), in Hammer's adaptation of Bill MacIlwraith's play The Anniversary, a "high camp" black comedy starring Bette Davis and Sheila Hancock. Tom Chantrell’s famous poster for The Anniversary featured a front-on still of Taylor in brassiere and panties below the slogan (attributed to Davies’ character) “I Spy with my little eye/Something beginning with SEX … and I mean to put a stop to it”.
  • 1967
    Age 23
    In 1967 Taylor was a “Bond girl” (with, among others, Jacqueline Bisset, Barbara Bouchet and Alexandra Bastedo) as Peg in Casino Royale and played on both stage and screen with Tommy Steele in Half a Sixpence.

    Her appearance with Benny Hill on 18 December 1965 included a gender-reversal parody of the 1956 film Baby Doll that Hill repeated in 1974 with Diana Darvey.
    More Details Hide Details Taylor is thought also to have been the announcer of a sketch in which Hill first performed his song "Those Days" in imitation of Sonny and Cher.

    More Details Hide Details Taylor later studied at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts and joined the London Festival Ballet. In the mid-1960s Taylor appeared in episodes of various British television series, including The Benny Hill Show (1965), The Lance Percival Show (1966), in which she sang as well as taking part in comedy sketches, The Old Campaigner (1967), which featured Terry-Thomas as a womanising plastics salesman, and Mr. Rose, starring William Mervyn as a retired senior policeman (1968).
