Barbara Cook

Tony-winning singer and actress; one of cabaret's great chanteuses -- via Broadway World. She made a splash in Plain and Fancy in 1955. She originated the roles of Cunegonde in Candide and Marian the Librarian in The Music Man. She transitioned to concert-hall and club work, becoming in many minds the premier interpreter of Sondheim's songs.
