Dark Monday • Not A Day Goes By

Barbara Cook & Vanessa Williams

I am still sad that I managed to not be in the audience of the 2010 production of 'Sondheim On Sondheim', a musical revue much like 'Side By Side By Sondheim' which was first heard 34 years earlier, in 1976. Both picked some of the great music written by Sondheim over the course of his career, with the latter revue having the benefit of some additional great musicals written in the years since. It featured the amazing talents of singer/actress Vanessa Williams, as well as the legendary singer Barbara Cook. The ladies appeared on 'The View' together to perform a number from the show, which was a mash-up of two song from two different shows. Enjoy as the ladies deliver the goods on "Not A Day Goes By" from 'Merrily We Roll Along' and "Losing My Mind" from 'Follies'.

Both ladies are brilliant performers, as can be seen in the clip above. You can purchase the Original Broadway Cast recording of Sondheim On Sondheim on iTunes and Amazon.
