An Evening with Barbara Cook is scheduled for April 26, 2014, at 8 PM.
The performance will kick off the start of Symphony Space's spring festival, Sleeping Around, which celebrates arts and artists whose careers and lives have intertwined with the histories of iconic hotels through New York City. Cook, with a special evening of cabaret, will recall "her years as the 'ingénue of Broadway' and her memorable runs at the Café Carlyle and Feinstein's at Loews Regency," according to press notes.
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.
