Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Barry Manilow met the press July 25 ahead of the July 26 start of Barry Manilow on Broadway, playing in a limited engagement at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre through August 17.
“I am thrilled to be returning to my hometown of New York City and performing once again on Broadway,” said Manilow in an earlier statement. “It holds a very special place in my heart.”
The artist had 25 consecutive Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 between 1975 and 1983. The list includes songs that he still sings today: “Mandy,” “It's a Miracle,” “Could It Be Magic,” “I Write the Songs,” “Tryin' To Get the Feeling Again,” “This One's For You,” “Weekend in New England,” “Looks Like We Made It,” “Can't Smile Without You,” “Even Now," and the Grammy-winning ”Copacabana (At the Copa).” He's also got a passion for musical theatre; he wrote the scores for the musicals Harmony and Copacabana.
Manilow recently celebrated his 500th show at the International Theater at the Westgate in Las Vegas, where he has been in residency since 2018.
