Based on the television film
"Her name was Lola. She was a showgirl..." Barry Manilow's Grammy Award-winning song you never forgot is now brought to life onstage!brbrA love letter to the Technicolor musicals of the 1940s, "Barry Manilow's Copacabana" presents the story of Lola as told through the eyes of Stephen, a present day aspiring songwriter whose imagination takes him back to a time when "music and passion were always in fashion." brbrHe dreams up Lola, fresh off the plane from Tulsa, who arrives in New York with show-biz aspirations. Tony (who looks amazingly like Stephen!) is a bartender/composer who falls in love with Lola and helps her become a Copa girl. While performing, Lola attracts the amorous attentions of Rico (who wears a diamond). Rico abducts Lola and takes her to his rival nightclub in Havana. Tony, with the help of his Copacabana friends, must now rescue Lola before...well, even if you know the song, there are still a few surprises!
