Stephen, a present-day, aspiring songwriter, is in the midst of writing a tune that tells the story of Lola: fresh off the plane from Tulsa, she arrives in New York with showbiz aspirations. Tony is a bartender/composer who falls in love with her and helps her become a Copa girl. Lola, of course, attracts the amorous attentions of Rico. When Rico goes a bit too far by abducting Lola and taking her to his rival nightclub in Havana, Tony and the whole Copacabana crew set off to rescue Lola!

A return to traditional American musical theatre flair, the large cast size boasts numerous chances for performers to shine, while the title alone will incite the interest of subscribers and entire newcomers to the theatre.
