Barry Manilow’s unforgettable hit song is brought to life onstage in this entertaining nightclub spectacle.

“Her name was Lola. She was a showgirl…” So begins this tale of romance and stardom that has captivated audiences across the globe. With sensational original Copacabana is a show that will leave you breathless.

Stephen, a present day aspiring songwriter, is in the midst of writing a tune telling the story of Lola: fresh off the plane from Tulsa, she arrives in New York with show-biz aspirations. Tony is a bartender/composer who falls in love with her and helps her become a Copa girl. Lola, of course, attracts the amorous attentions of Rico. When Rico goes a bit too far by abducting Lola and taking her to his rival nightclub in Havana, Tony and the whole Copacabana crew set off to rescue Lola!

Audiences will delight in Copacabana's splashy production numbers and to the slew of brand-new Barry Manilow songs. A return to traditional American musical theatre flair, the large cast size boasts numerous chances for performers to shine while the title alone will incite the interest of subscribers and entire new-comers to the theater.
