Barbara Cook: An Institution That Works In DC

She sang her heart out last night.

The crowd of old-timers and gay men gave her such continuous ovation that Ms. Cook constantly put her hand to her heart and several times reached out to embrace the crowd.

She sang many non-typical songs, but from the best composers: Arlen, Gershwin, Berlin, Mercer, Sondheim.

The band was tight and I, for one, wanted to hear them jam more.
