Book & music by: Barry Manilow. Lyrics by: Jack Feldman & Bruce Sussman. Hobart Repertory Theatre. Playhouse Theatre, Hobart. Director: Patricia Kempa
“Her name was Lola,” and yes, it’s true, “she was a showgirl”, and she was gorgeous! The Hobart Repertory Theatre production of Barry Manilow’s Copacabana, a musical theatre extravaganza, had all the right ingredients: music, singing and dancing, lights, costumes, sequins, fun and laughter. The proof of a successful production must be the number of people singing after the show. The signature tune, the only original, of course featured in the after-show singing.
