Barbara Cook

The Kennedy Center’s newest honoree starts her shows by reminding us that she’s old (85 this fall); in her characteristically self-deprecating fashion, she makes a spectacle out of needing to be helped onto the stage by two burly waiters. But once there, she opens her mouth and, without fuss or fanfare, proceeds to blow every other singer, of any age, clear out of the water.

Ms. Cook’s latest one-woman cabaret offering leads her ever further from the traditional Broadway repertoire — the Rodgers, Hammerstein and Sondheim that she’s associated with — and toward the rustic jazz of Hoagy Carmichael, the witty, swinging rockabilly of Dan Hicks, and even “House of the Rising Sun.” In her finest moments, which are many, she closes her eyes makes you feel as though she’s eliminated all but four elements: you, her, the music, and that elusive quality known as the truth.
