Copacabana at Newbury

Barry Manilow’s musical Copacabana opened at the Watermill Theatre in Newbury on 15th July and is running until Saturday 4th September.

It is a new production directed by Craig Revel Horwood who is about to start rehearsals on a tour of Abba and Tim Rice’s Chess the Musical which kicks off next month.

Lo La Mar has big dreams of stardom appearing in steamy nightclubs to reach her goal. Enter budding songwriter Tony Star who falls for her and arranges an audition at the Copacabana to launch her career as a Copa girl in New York. But Lola is whisked away by the villainous Rico and Cuban star Conchita Alvarez to perform in his club the Tropicana in Havana.  This when Tony stages a dramatic rescue …

The Copa cast includes Laura Pitt-Pulford  (Samantha/Lola),  Antony Reed (Rico) Edward Baker Duly (Stephen/Tony), Basienka Blake (Conchita), Julian Littman (Sam) and Karen Mann (Gladys)
