Barry Manilow: Manilow on Broadway
Just as Barry Manilow’s wall was not big enough to hold all his gold, silver, and multiplatinum-selling records, Broadway was not big enough to hold Barry Manilow. The fabled street didn’t have enough seats for all his fans when Manilow on Broadway premiered, so Barry is personally extending the Great White Way until it runs through cities across America.
Manilow on Broadway—the blockbuster show that caused Entertainment Weekly to squeal, “You couldn’t help but dance in the aisles”—may outfit its audience with green glow sticks, but at the show’s heart is the showmanship and touching sincerity that moved more than 80 million records worldwide. And, of course, the irresistible tunes. “All I got is a whole bunch of hit songs,” Barry announced self-deprecatingly during a recent show, “and I’m going to do them.” Springing from a massive back catalog that includes 50 Top 40 hits are the anthemic pleas of “Mandy” and the tragic tales of love and murder in “Copacabana (At the Copa).” But for every classic like “I Write the Songs” and “Could It Be Magic,” hardcore “Fanilows” also will be treated to deeper cuts such as the driving “Brooklyn Blues” and the bittersweet elegy of “When October Goes.”
In between each hit, Manilow pauses to reminisce about his storied career, including descriptions of the tiny Manhattan apartment where he lived while working his way up. Barry’s anecdotes give the music an added depth—and audiences a rare chance to hear their favorites as if for the first time.
