Reviews for Then & Now


Huffington Post

“And what a story it is, told in a bright, refreshing and brutally honest voice, in a manner that you would expect from Barbara Cook . . . Get yourself a copy of ‘Then & Now’ now and plunge into it, giving yourself breaks here and there to listen to Barbara singing . . .”


WOSU/NPR News and Classical Music

“It’s all here in Cook’s memoir. Great theater, great people, not so great people, alcoholism, compulsive eating, an affair with actor Arthur Hill when they were both married to other people; the great love of the lady’s life. A second career in cabaret that continues into her ninth decade.”


Wall Street Joural

“Theater rats will savor Ms. Cook’s account of her ‘Candide’ audition in front of the show’s composer, Leonard Bernstein . . . It’s clear in every word she sings that her wisdom is deep and hard-won.”


New York Times

“‘Then and Now’ (HarperCollins) is narrated with the same homey bonhomie that has informed Ms. Cook’s stage patter in recent years.”
