Most shows, all you get is a ticket stub for your scrapbook. With Barry Manilow, you’ll always have Paris. The show Manilow calls the “most romantic” of his career has found an ideal home at the Paris Théâtre at Paris Las Vegas. Along with his own catalog of love songs (“Mandy,” “I Write the Songs,” “Ready to Take a Chance Again,” “Could It Be Magic”), Manilow performs covers of a few of his favorite romantic ballads by other songwriters.

A show about the late Weimar era vocal troupe the Comedian Harmonists bearing the title "Harmony" had better have memorable singing, and on that score this musical by Barry Manilow and his writing partner Bruce Sussman doesn't disappoint. In solos, duets and ensemble numbers especially, the voices soar on lilting melodies that strive to conjure the glory days of the American musical, that period bookended between Rodgers & Hammerstein and Kander & Ebb. The show's numbers may not evoke those easy-listening Manilow hits of the 1970s, but they have an ingratiating beauty that serves to remind that the man who made famous the Bruce Johnston lyric "I am music.

Before Monday night's show with Barry Manilow, the first of three fireworks-punctuated nights at the Hollywood Bowl culminating with Independence Day, one question came to mind: What does a Barry Manilow crowd look like in 2012? After nearly 40 years of massive pop hits and even a few memorable commercial jingles (the insurance company that's “like a good neighbor”? That's Manilow), the answer should have been obvious -- the crowd looks like you, me and just about everybody else.

A local council in Sydney, Australia, is taking radical measures against car-revving youths -- the calming tones of singer Barry Manilow. Beginning in July, Manilow's greatest hits will be piped into one car park in a bid to drive the youths away. Bill Saravinovski, deputy mayor of Rockdale, a suburb of Sydney, said the decision was taken because the youths were intimidating local people.

Steve Lawrence loved to talk music with Frank Sinatra. During one of their chats, the Chairman of the Board asked Lawrence to name his favorite song. "I said, there are a lot of wonderful songs out there," Lawrence, 78, recalled in a recent interview. "He said, 'Name one.' I said OK, 'Moonlight in Vermont.' He said 'Why?' I said well to be honest it's the only American popular song I can think of that doesn't have a rhyme. " Sinatra was taken aback. "He said, 'Really? I recorded that song.' And he starts to sing it to me across the table.

The intersecting fan demographic for baseball and musical theater isn't large, but it is apparently substantial enough to warrant a new stage musical based on the popular 1988 movie "Bull Durham. " Producers announced Wednesday that the new musical will have its world premiere at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta in September 2014. The musical features a script by Ron Shelton, who directed and wrote the original movie, and songs by Susan Werner. The original movie, which starred Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, follows a minor league veteran who is sent to Durham, N.C., to coach a rookie pitcher.

Emmy-Award winning production designer Charles Lisanby, known for his lavish sets during the golden age of TV variety specials, died Aug. 23 in Los Angeles. He was 89. According to his longtime agent and manager, Bob Goodman, Lisanby had recently fallen. The cause of death, according to Morgan's Funeral Home, was sepsis. Lisanby created huge, meticulous sets for specials starring Barry Manilow, Diana Ross and many others, as well as for an Oscars show and ice show telecasts. But he was a cultured world traveler who drove his assistants and crews to distraction not only for his attention to detail but also for insisting on listening to opera broadcasts as they worked.
