From the 1970s into the millennium, she was a headliner in nightclubs and concert halls. What's often forgotten is that along the way, she also had a huge career in television. We'll look at vintage Barbara from the height of her career and in such classic productions as Bloomer Girl, Gilbert and Sullivan's Yeoman of the Guard, The Music Man, The Gay Life and others. This is what musical theater singing is all about. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=276005 92Y 92Y
