Tickets for the return engagement, priced at $60, are now available at the Lincoln Center Theater box office or through Telecharge.

The intermissionless Barbara Cook's Broadway takes audiences on a tour of the golden years of Broadway. Cook performs songs from — and reminisces about — this period of Broadway history. Wally Harper serves as Cook's musical director and arranger; Richard Sarpola performs on bass. Cook 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. Cook recently made her Metropolitan Opera debut in the New Year's Eve gala performance of Franz Léhar's The Merry Widow. Her recordings are numerous; her most recent is titled "Count Your Blessings."

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.
