NEW YORK (AP) - Barbara Cook’s return to a New York stage in a show about her life has been postponed.

Producers said Monday that “Barbara Cook: Then and Now,” conceived by James Lapine and directed by Tommy Tune, will not be staged this spring at the New World Stages complex.

In a statement, producer Roy Furman noted that Cook has been hard at work on her memoir. “Going directly into rehearsal to create this new production was causing undue pressure and stress,” he said.

There was no word when Cook’s show - billed as a “vibrant and candid journey through her remarkable life” - would be staged next.
