The show, which was recorded live last fall, received a 2002 Tony Award nomination for Best Special Event and has been nominated for a 2003 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance. Featuring Wally Harper on piano and John Burr on bass, Mostly Sondheim has Cook -- the original female lead of Broadway's Candide and The Music Man -- singing songs by the iconic composer-lyricist Sondheim ("Losing My Mind" from Follies, "Everybody Says Don't" from Anyone Can Whistle, etc.) plus songs that Sondheim has said he wishes he'd written (including "You Can't Get a Man With a Gun" from Annie Get Your Gun, "The Trolley Song" from Meet Me In St. Louis, and "Ice Cream" from She Loves Me).
Mostly Sondheim is being released in both DVD and VHS formats by Koch Entertainment; the DVD edition includes an interview with Cook and an excerpt from one of her master classes. Cook will sign copies of the video at the Tower Records store located at Broadway & 66th Street (near Lincoln Center) on Tuesday, May 20, beginning at 6pm.
