Barbara Cook, an American Treasure!
Michael Casey joins us once again to share the life and times of Barbara Cook. The Tony award winning Cook is best-loved and remembered for her work on the Broadway stage. An amazing singer and refreshingly impulsive actress, she made her debut at age 23 in the musical Flahooley. Roles in Plain and Fancy and the most famous flop of all time "Candide" followed. In 1957, she created her most famous role as Marion Paroo opposite Robert Preston in The Music Man. After retiring from musical theater she emerged as a dynamite cabaret singer.
