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.
