Description: One of the all time great voices comes to our stage for two very special weeks this April and May, debuting a brand new evening of music! Her pure soprano, haunting tone, and warm onstage presence make any evening with Barbara Cook an unforgettable nightlife experience. Not only are Ms. Cook's concert and cabaret performances the stuff of New York legend, but her life in the theatre has stretched from the creation of the leading female roles in the Broadway classics Candide, The Music Man, and She Loves Me, to her recent appearance in Sondheim on Sondheim, and a whole lot in between! Among a heavy mantle of awards, Ms. Cook has been honored with the Tony, Grammy, Drama Desk, and Drama Critics Circle Awards, has been inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame, and was recently presented with the Kennedy Center Honor.
Venue Description: Evoking the ambience of a 1920s & '30s speakeasy, 54 Below provides an unforgettable New York nightlife experience, combining performances by Broadway's best with innovative New American cuisine in an elegant setting. Newsday calls 54 Below "infectious. A hip hangout for Broadway babies and the fans who love them with food that is sophisticated and understated." Open Mon.-Sat. from 5:30pm; Sun. from noon.
