It's Not Where You Start: The Songbook of Barbara Cook, celebrates the legendary Broadway, concert and cabaret star Barbara Cook. The New York Times spoke of Ms. Cook’s “flawless beauty, crystalline articulation and supreme musical intelligence.” Throughout her career, she collected many nominations and awards including a Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award, a Kennedy Center Honor, and The York Theatre Company’s 2011 Oscar Hammerstein Award. On Sunday, January 13, 2019, Shana Farr, an award-winning concert and cabaret performer, will pay tribute to Barbara Cook at The York Theatre Company in It’s Not Where You Start: The Songbook of Barbara Cook. Among the musical numbers are selections by several other York Theatre Oscar Hammerstein Award recipients including Bock & Harnick, Stephen Sondheim, and of course, Oscar Hammerstein II.

The show exudes warmth and buoyancy, featuring Cook’s signature songs including “’Til There Was You”, “Ice Cream” and “This Is All Very New to Me”, as well as Bernstein’s “Glitter and Be Gay” and selections from some of Sondheim’s greatest, including Follies, Merrily We Roll Along and Anyone Can Whistle.
