Producer Roy Furman, in association with Sandy Robertson and Luigi Caiola, has announced that Barbara Cook: Then and Now, an evening conceived by 3-time Tony Award winner James Lapine and directed by 10-time Tony Award winner Tommy Tune, has been postponed.
Barbara Cook: Then and Now was scheduled to begin performances April 12th , officially open May 4th and play a limited engagement through June 26th Off Broadway at New World Stages Stage One (304 West 50 Street).
Producer Roy Furman said
Yesterday, after meeting with Barbara, Tommy and James, the decision was made to postpone the production. Barbara has spent the last several months working very hard to finish her book. Going directly into rehearsal to create this new production was causing undue pressure and stress. Despite strong ticket sales and everyone's best intentions, we all agreed it was best to postpone the production.
Barbara Cook added
I want all of my friends and fans to know that I look forward to singing again for them very soon.
