Expected to perform a selectionsof hits and surprises from his deep catalog, Manilow released a statement saying: “I am thrilled to be returning to my hometown of New York City and performing once again on Broadway. It holds a very special place in my heart.”

Manilow’s history on Broadway includes a special Tony-winning appearance in 1977; an eight-week run at the Gershwin Theater in 1989; and a sold-out eight-week run at the St. James Theatre in 2013
