The acclaimed singing actress will play The Town Hall Nov. 14 at 8 PM.
"Legendary concert artist and Kennedy Center Honoree Barbara Cook returns to Town Hall," press notes state, "with a new evening of song (and stories) during which she’ll continue to delve into her newly developed repertoire of jazz and swing while also reprising her now-classic renditions of songs from Broadway and the great American songbook."
Barbara Cook, a 2010 Tony nominee for her performance in Sondheim on Sondheim, has starred on Broadway in Flahooley, Candide, The Gay Life, The Music Man and She Loves Me. She received a Best Featured Actress in a Musical Tony Award for her performance in The Music Man, and her one-woman show, Mostly Sondheim, was nominated for a Tony in the Best Special Theatrical Event category. Cook was also seen on the New York stage in Barbara Cook's Broadway. Both Mostly Sondheim and Barbara Cook's Broadway were recorded for DRG. Cook made her solo debut at the Metropolitan Opera, which was also released on DRG Records.
