Barry Manilow Finally Celebrates His Broadway Opening…At the Copa!
After bronchitis cancelled a week of shows, the Grammy winner returns to the stage.
To the shouts of "We love you, Barry!" music superstar Barry Manilow returned to the stage of the St. James Theatre on Tuesday, January 29 to finally celebrate his Broadway opening night – an event that was postponed for a week after a case of bronchitis kept the Grammy winner from singing. Following the evening's performance of Manilow on Broadway (which features his biggest hits like "Copacabana," "Mandy," and "Can't Smile Without You,") the singer headed – of course – to the Copacabana on West 47th Street to commemorate his Broadway return.
Manilow's previous Broadway credits include his Tony Award-winning Barry Manilow on Broadway and Barry Manilow at the Gershwin. He also contributed songs to Bette Midler's Clams on the Half Shell Revue and The Madwoman of Central Park West. In the West End, his music was featured in Barry Manilow's Copacabana - The Musical, which went on to tour the U.S., Australia, and Asia.
Manilow on Broadway runs through March 3. Check out the opening night action in the photo gallery below.
