Barbara Cook Postpones Show

Barbara Cook has canceled her widely ballyhooed return to the New York stage in a concert show conceived by James Lapine and directed by ten-time Tony winner Tommy Tune. “Barbara Cook: Then and Now” was to have played 65 scheduled performances April 13-June 26 at Off-Broadway’s New World Stages–Stage One. But producer Producer Furman released a statement saying, “Yesterday, after meeting with Barbara, Tommy and James, the decision was made to postpone the production. Barbara has spent the last several months working very hard to finish her book. Going directly into rehearsal to create this new production was causing undue pressure and stress. Despite strong ticket sales and everyone’s best intentions, we all agreed it was best to postpone the production.” I look forward to the show whenever it arises.
