FEINSTEIN’S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine, and “an invaluable New York institution” by The New York Post, continues its 10th Anniversary season with the return engagement of Tony Award winning Broadway legend and 2011 Kennedy Center Honoree BARBARA COOK from April 10 to 21. Her latest show "Let’s Fall In Love" will be comprised of her signature mix of songs pop standards, jazz classics and Broadway staples. Musical Director Ted Rosenthal will lead an all-star band. The engagement runs at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
BARBARA COOK – considered "Broadway’s favorite ingénue" during the heyday of the Broadway musical – launched a second career as a concert and recording artist soaring from one professional peak to another. Her silvery soprano, purity of tone, and warm presence have delighted audiences around the world for more than 50 years. She received the 2011 Kennedy Center Honors, along with Meryl Streep, Neil Diamond, Yo-Yo Ma and Sonny Rollins.
Whether on the stages of major international venues throughout the world or in the intimate setting of a New York nightclub, Barbara Cook’s popularity continues to thrive – as evidenced by the celebration of her 80th birthday in the Fall of 2007 with three sold out concerts with the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall, her solo concert debut at the Metropolitan Opera (which made her the first female pop singer to be presented by the Met in the company's long history), and a succession of six triumphant returns to Carnegie Hall where she made a legendary solo concert debut in 1975. Miss Cook's ever-growing mantle of honors including the Tony, Grammy, Drama Desk and New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, as well as her citation as a Living New York Landmark, her induction into the Theatre Hall of Fame and Musical America's 2007 Vocalist of the Year award.
A leading star during the Broadway musical's "golden age" of the 50's and 60's, her many Broadway credits include the creation of three classic roles in the American musical theatre: Cunegonde in Leonard Bernstein’s Candide, Marian the Librarian in Meredith Willson’s The Music Man (Tony Award), and Amalia in Bock and Harnick’s She Loves Me (Drama Desk Award). Last year she returned to Broadway for the first time in 23 years and received a Tony Award nomination for her performance in Sondheim On Sondheim. Her latest CD is You Make Me Feel So Young, recorded last year live at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency.
