Barry Manilow sat down with Jujamcyn Theaters president and producer Jordan Roth to chat about the pop star's return to the Great White Way in the new concert Manilow on Broadway, now at the St. James Theatre. Drawing on decades of singing and songwriting, the show includes Manilow's greatest hits. "Mandy," anyone? "I Write the Songs"? "Looks Like We Made It"? They're all here. Manilow and Roth talk about the influence Broadway has had on his pop creations, the power of the live audience — and even Lady Gaga.
