"What a treat to see Barbara Cook on DVD. I was very lucky to have a front row seat to "Mostly Sondheim" when it played Benaroya Hall in Seattle last October. Hearing and seeing Ms Cook in person was a very wonderful experience.
It isn't quite like seeing her live in concert but this wonderfully packaged DVD is the very next best thing. Filmed at SUNY in Purchase, NY last October and November it is beautifully photographed and presents the entire show. Having been a big fan of hers for many years it is wonderful to watch her artistry over and over.
As a bonus, there are scenes from a Master Class she gave at the Kennedy Center last August. She is so endearing and warm to the students that she can correct them and they love her for it. A young man named Tim Tourpin gave an amazing rendition of "Sailing" that had Barbara Cook visibly stunned.
Don't hesitate a moment longer to get this brilliant piece of theatre."

"I've been a longtime Barbara Cook fan...having purchased the CD of this concert with featured star Malcolm Getz. I've found hours of pleasure with the CD. So I was quite taken aback to find the DVD to be SO extraordinary. It adds all kinds of wonderful between numbers patter...and shows this artist in finest form. And many new songs (who knew she was a fan of Reba McIntire)! I just cannot take my eyes off the screen.
She truly CAN drive a person crazy.Rush...don't this."
Brilliant Barbara!!

"This DVD is perfect!!Anyone who loves great singing, acting and storytelling will adore it. Ms. Cook is one-of -a-kind. I saw her in She Loves Me and Something More! as a teen and she sounds just as great now as she did then. She just has an amazing voice!
This DVD would be perfect as a birthday or Christmas gift. The recipient will truly thank you! Barbara Cook is truly amazing!What a wonderful woman and artist!"
