Editorial Reviews

When Barbara Cook began her professional singing career more than 50 years ago, she was a Broadway ingenue with a silky soprano. Today, at 75, she's still packing them in on the concert and cabaret circuit. But along the way, she gained weight, struggled with the bottle and disappeared from the limelight. It was in "Candide," "The Music Man," and later, the show "She Loves Me" that Broadway turned Cook, a singer who started out with a bad case of stage fright, into a star. Her comeback began 20 years ago, and, based upon her Sondheim concert tour that completed in 2003, which drew raves from the critics, Barbara Cook is like a fine wine -- better with age. Anchor: John Donvan.

It is nice to hear Barbara Cook tell a little about herself. We do not know as much about America's greatest living singer as we would like. I hope this leads to her writing her memoires. She makes her brilliant successes in several fields (musical theater, nonmusical theater, cabaret singing, concert singer, and recording artist)sound achievable to others. This interview makes me want to know more!

I think Barbara Cook has a very interesting life story, but unfortunately this boring television interview doesn't capture it. I would have much preferred to see more of her outstanding "Mostly Sondheim" tour rather than the few snippets contained. In short: Love Barbara Cook, couldn't hardly wait for this DVD to end.
