The beloved singer-songwriter's exclusive 17-date limited engagement, simply titled Manilow Broadway, is scheduled to play the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre through August 17, 2019.
Mr. Manilow previously commented: “I am thrilled to be returning to my hometown of New York City and performing once again on Broadway. It holds a very special place in my heart.”
Synopsis: "Manilow Broadway promises an evening of nonstop Top 40 Hits and surprises from his extensive catalog of music ranging from pop, to Broadway, Jazz, and adult contemporary."
Barry Manilow previously made his Broadway debut in December 1976, receiving a Special Tony Award in 1977 for his efforts. He would return to play the Gershwin Theatre in 1989 and, more recently, the St. James Theatre in 2013, for two sold out 8-week engagements.
His greatest hits include the Grammy Award-winning song "Copacabana," as well as the likes of "Can't Smile Without You," "I Write the Songs," "Daybreak," "Even Now," "Hang On," and "Mandy."
