Critics weigh in on the pairing of Michael Feinstein and Barbara Cook at Feinstein’s at the Regency.
Stephen Holden in the NYTimes: “When Barbara Cook sighs the word in the opening phrases of “Cheek to Cheek,” the title song of her duet show with Michael Feinstein, you really feel as if she had just found paradise. And so have you.”
Frank Scheck in the NYPost: “It was Michael Feinstein’s 54th birthday Tuesday night, but it was the audience at his namesake nightclub that received the present.
“It came in the form of “Cheek to Cheek,” the new show co-starring the fabulous Barbara Cook. Like his previous collaborations with Cheyenne Jackson and David Hyde Pierce, it shows that Feinstein plus one is greater than the sum of its parts — his shortlived outing with Dame Edna being a notable exception.”
