BIOGRAPHY:

Barbara Cook’s association with Stephen Sondheim began in 1985 when she starred as Sally in the NY Philharmonic’s now legendary concerts of Follies and continued with her Tony Award nominated concert Mostly Sondheim. As a leading star on Broadway during the 50’s and 60’s, her many credits include the creation of three classic roles in the musical theatre:  Cunegonde in Candide, Marian in The Music Man (Tony Award) and Amalia in She Loves Me (Drama Desk Award).  In 1974, Ms. Cook embarked on a concert and recording career, achieving one career high after another from  her solo concert debut at Carnegie Hall in 1975 to her historic solo concert at the MET in 2006 when she became the first female non-classical singer to be presented by the Metropolitan Opera in that company’s long history. The most recent of the many recordings by this Grammy Award winner is the 6-cd boxed set The Essential Barbara Cook.(DRG Records).

“An exceptionally sensitive Sondheim interpreter, Ms. Cook delivers ‘Send in the Clowns’ with a simple, sweet bereftness that breaks your heart.” –Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Barbara Cook remains a wonder. At 82, she has returned to Broadway after too long an absence to deliver a master class in lyric phrasing. Her exquisite rendition of ‘Send in the Clowns’ demonstrates the essence of musical theater: an expert performer capturing the emotional truth found in a perfect blending of words and music.” –Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

“BARBARA COOK is INCOMPARABLE.” –Elysa Gardner, USA Today
