Legendary songwriter and performer Barry Manilow celebrated the 100th performance of his hit show, MANILOW: MUSIC AND PASSION, at the Las Vegas Hilton, and PBS was there to capture all the excitement on stage and behind-the-scenes. Barry gives his audience the show of a lifetime, delivering favorites such as "Mandy", "Copacabana", and "I Write The Songs" in a high-energy party--Vegas style! Plus, Barry sings songs from his new album The Greatest Songs Of The Fifties which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, such as "Unchained Melody" and "Venus", as well as songs that have never been captured on film: "If I Can Dream", "The Best Seat In The House", "See The Show Again", "Do You Know Who's Livin' Next Door?", "Come Monday", and "Here's To Las Vegas".
Shot in high-definition, MANILOW: MUSIC AND PASSION is an exciting, multifaceted production that features contemporary hi-tech music and effects mixed with the classic entertainment values of Las Vegas legends such as Sinatra, Presley, Davis, and Martin.
And the cameras never stopped rolling!!!! They followed Barry everywhere--before the show and after the show. This intimate look at Barry's work has been compiled into two compelling featurettes that not only give the fans an inside look at what goes into producing his live Vegas show and the PBS special, but also the outtakes during the shoot.
