Barry Manilow Cancels Broadway Comeback Due to Illness

Singer Barry Manilow canceled the opening night (and three other performances) of his upcoming Broadway show after coming down with bronchitis. The 69-year-old singer broke the news on his official website, writing, “It turns out the only thing worse than hell and high water is bronchitis. Barry is deeply sorry to disappoint his fans and is doing everything he can to ensure a speedy recovery.”

The concerts, which had been slated for Thursday through Sunday, will be made up in February and March. Manilow has signed on for a 25-show run at the St. James Theatre in New York.
