Manilow to play Broadway

Concert run set for 17 performances

Barry Manilow will play a concert engagement on Broadway in the winter, skedding 17 dates at the St. James Theater.

The stint, which starts Jan. 18, steps into a venue that will be vacated at the end of the year by the tuner “Bring It On.” Theater is poised as well for a legit booking later in the spring, although a tenant has not yet been confirmed.

Manilow’s Broadway berth follows on the heels of the recent success of other brief concert or stand-up outings on the Rialto this season. Last week, the limited run of “Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons on Broadway” pulled in about $635,000 in just three perfs, while Lewis Black’s show “Running on Empty” grossed $250,000 in two.

Manilow has previously done concert stints on the Main Stem in 1976 and 1989.
