Legendary Barbara Cook Spends One Night Only at Feinstein's/54 Below
Her Broadway debut was in the short-lived whimsical puppet allegory musical, FLAHOOLEY, but after impressing Broadway as Ado Annie and Carrie Pipperidge in revivals of OKLAHOMA! and CAROUSEL, Barbara Cook started creating her own starring roles. She was an Amish girl hooked on a handsome New Yorker in PLAIN AND FANCY, she introduced the remarkable Leonard Bernstein aria "Glitter And Be Gay" in CANDIDE, she won a Tony as the strong-willed librarian in THE MUSIC MAN and melted hearts singing "Vanilla Ice Cream" in SHE LOVES ME.
Barbara Cook's eagerly anticipated memoir "Then And Now" is set to be released on June 21st, and she'll be celebrating that evening with a one-night-only concert at Feinstein's/54 Below.
Broadway's favorite Golden Age ingenue will entertain with her silvery soprano, purity of tone, and warm presence which have delighted audiences around the world for more than 50 years. This evening marks the first time Ms. Cook has appeared in concert in New York City for over a year. She returns to trumpet the completion and publishing of her book, an accomplishment she has strived for, for many years. Critics are saying: "Barbara Cook [in her memoir] delivers a powerful, personal tale of pain and triumph, as straight forward, unflinchingly honest, and open hearted as her singing."
