In 2002 the veteran singer-actress received a Tony nomination for Best Special Theatrical Event for her tribute to Stephen Sondheim, which she performed Monday nights to critical acclaim at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theatre. That program, simply titled Mostly Sondheim, was subsequently taped for CD and DVD release.
The new concerts, which will officially open March 28 will run through April 18, will be performed Friday through Sunday on the set of King Lear at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre. Wally Harper will again serve as Cook's musical director and arranger; Jon Burr will perform on bass.
Barbara Cook's Broadway will take audiences on a tour of the Golden Years of Broadway. Cook will perform songs from — and reminisce about — this period of Broadway history.
Barbara Cook has starred on Broadway in Flahooley, Candide, The Gay Life, The Music Man and She Loves Me.
