Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl...
Barry Manilow's sensational COPACABANA takes to the ADC stage for the first time this Easter, in the first ever staging produced outside of London. Set in 1940s New York at the world famous Copacabana nightclub, this multi-sensual musical extravaganza transports us back to an era when 'music and passion were always in fashion'.
The story unfolds through the imagination of an aspiring present day songwriter. While creating the world's next big hit, he conjures up the heart-warming tale of hopeful showgirl Lola Lamar as she is launched into the path of stardom as a Copa girl, with the help of Tony Starr, a bartender with dreams of his own. However, the course of true love runs far from smooth, since the villainous Rico has other plans for her, whisking Lola away to be the star of his Tropicana club in Cuba. Sassy New York is replaced by sultry Havana, as love and romance become embroiled in jealousy and murder.
The action comes alive amidst vibrant costumes, spectacular sets, and sensational choreography. With glitz and glamour aplenty, the show-stopping numbers and thrilling musical score make for an unforgettable evening of good old-fashioned feel-good entertainment.
