HERES TO LIFE
AN EXCLUSIVE THREE WEEK ENGAGEMENT FEATURING LEE MUSIKER AND AN ALL-STAR FIVE PIECE BAND
FEINSTEINS AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed Best of New York by New York Magazine, and an invaluable New York institution by The New York Post, continues its 10th Anniversary season with the return engagement of Tony Award winning Broadway legend BARBARA COOK from April 14 to May 2 in her new show Heres To Life. In an exclusive three-week run, Ms. Cook will perform selections from the worlds of theater, swing, pop and jazz.

The show featuring Lee Musiker heading an all-star quintet runs at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
BARBARA COOK considered Broadways favorite ingénue during the heyday of the Broadway musical then launched a second career as a concert and recording artist soaring from one professional peak to another. Her silvery soprano, purity of tone, and warm presence have delighted audiences around the world for more than 50 years.
Whether on the stages of major international venues throughout the world or in the intimate setting of a New York nightclub Barbara Cooks popularity continues to thrive as evidenced the celebration of her 80th birthday in the Fall of 2007 with three sold out concerts with the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall, her solo concert debut at the Metropolitan Opera (which made her the first female pop singer to be presented by the Met in the company's long history), and a succession of six triumphant returns to Carnegie Hall where she made a legendary solo concert debut in 1975. Miss Cook's ever-growing mantle of honors including the Tony, Grammy, Drama Desk and New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, as well as her citation as a Living New York Landmark, her induction into the Theatre Hall of Fame and Musical America's 2007 Vocalist of the Year award.
A leading star during the Broadway musical's "golden age" of the 50's and 60's, her many Broadway credits include the creation of three classic roles in the American musical theatre: Cunegonde in Leonard Bernsteins Candide, Marian the Librarian in Meredith Willsons The Music Man (Tony Award) and Amalia in Bock and Harnicks She Loves Me (Drama Desk Award).
