Broadway musical theater legend Barbara Cook will grace the Mahaiwe stage on Saturday, August 4th with John Pizzarelli. Barbara Cook’s silvery soprano voice, purity of tone, and warm presence have delighted audiences around the world for more than 50 years. The recipient of a Tony, a Grammy, a Drama Desk Award, and an inductee of the Broadway Hall of Fame, she was considered “Broadway’s favorite ingenue” during the heyday of the Broadway musical. Ms. Cook is a consummate solo performer, appearing everywhere from Royal Albert Hall to the Sydney Opera House and on such records as the definitive performance of Stephen Sondheim’s Follies and the original cast recording of Candide. She continues to thrive, most recently with a triumphant return to Broadway in 2010 with the premiere of Sondheim on Sondheim, a new musical that delves into the life of the famous composer through his own works. For this role, she was nominated for another Tony-Best Featured Actress in a Musical.
