I believe she was in the original cast of Candide and sang that very hard and high , " Glitter and be gay"

She was a great performer.  I saw her in "The Music Man" a week or so after the opening and fell in love with her.  My love continued when I saw her in "The Gay Life" and "She Loves Me."  Her singing, of course, was wonderful, and her stage personality conveyed a mixture of feistiness and vulnerability.
Incidentally, there was a British television broadcast of "She Loves Me" shown on PBS with an enjoyable interview with Cook reminiscing about the show.
A great Broadway star!

In June 2008 I attended Sunday in the Park with George at 
Roundabout Theater Company Studio 54 with a friend from
Singapore who was visiting on vacation.  I was so moved
by the performance that I forgot my umbrella at my seat.
My friend went back to retrieve it and while I waited, who
should appear close to me walking out but Barbara Cook.
I blurted out "Barbara" and we kept up a short conversation
about Horne, about Santa Barbara.  She was so down-to-earth
and friendly.  This is a sad day. A great artist is gone.
