She's won a Tony, a Grammy, and a Drama Desk Award: it's Barbara Cook, who will offer a cabaret concert this weekend, Oct. 26 & 27, at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, NY.
Accompanied by Wally Harper, Cook is appearing as part of the theatre's "special events series," which directly follows her engagement at Manhattan's Cafe Carlyle.
Cook made her Broadway debut in Flahooley, but her most famous roles are in She Loves Me, Candide (as Miss Cunegonde), and The Music Man (as Marian the librarian), for which she won a Tony. Cook made her Carnegie Hall debut in 1975, and was nominated for an Olivier Award for her 1986 one-woman concert in London. When she brought the show to Broadway the following year, she earned a Drama Desk Award.
