Alverno Presents Barbara Cook

Sept. 23, 2012

In celebration of Alverno College’s 125th Anniversary, Alverno Presents is honored to open our 53rd Season with Barbara Cook. Hailed by the Financial Times as “the greatest singer in the world,” Cook will perform at the Pitman Theater on Saturday, October 6th, at 8 p.m.
Cook’s silvery sopranos, purity of tone, and warm presence have delighted audiences around the world for more than 50 years. Considered “Broadway’s favorite ingénue” during the heyday of the Broadway musical, she launched a second career as a concert and recording artist soaring from one professional peak to another. With an ever-growing mantle of honors including the Tony, Grammy, Drama Desk and New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, her citation as a Living New York Landmark, her induction into the Theatre Hall of Fame, and her most recent recognition as a 2011 Kennedy Center Honoree, Barbara Cook exists on a plane few artists ever reach.
In 2004 Miss Cook’s concert, Barbara Cook’s Broadway, was hailed by both the Associated Press and USA TODAY as one of the ten best theatre productions of the year. USA Today noted that “Barbara Cook is singing as gloriously as ever in her latest one-woman show,” adding that “this septuagenarian’s combination of gorgeous technique and emotional insight is nothing short of miraculous.” The Associated Press called Barbara Cook’s Broadway “the most satisfying musical-theater experience of the year. At 77 and still in marvelous voice, she has earned the right to be called legendary.”

A newly named 2011 Kennedy Center Honoree, Miss Cook recently returned to the Broadway stage after a 23-year absence, and was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance, in the musical Sondheim on Sondheim, directed by James Lapine, for the Roundabout Theater Company.
