Bernadette Peters

One of the biggest Broadway stars of her era, Bernadette Peters was widely acclaimed as the finest singing actress to come along since Barbra Streisand. Born Bernadette Lazzara on February 28, 1948, in New York City, she began singing and dancing while a toddler, and was already a member of Actors' Equity by the age of nine. By 1959, having adopted the stage name Peters, she appeared in a revival of The Most Happy Fella, subsequently co-starring in a road tour of Gypsy; however, she then retired from performing for a time, extensively studying acting and singing during her late-teen years.

In 1968, Peters won a Theatre World citation for her performance in George M!; that same year, she also garnered a Drama Desk Award for her comedic turn in the off-Broadway spoof Dames at Sea. During the late '60s and early '70s, however, she suffered a series of theatrical disappointments, among them productions of On the Town, La Strada, W.C., and Mack and Mabel; as a result, by the mid-'70s she was also regularly appearing in film and television roles. Peters' Hollywood breakthrough arrived in 1979 opposite co-star Steve Martin in The Jerk; two years later, they reunited for the fascinating flop Pennies from Heaven.

Returning to Broadway, she reached new peaks of success as the star of a pair of Stephen Sondheim musicals, 1984's Sunday in the Park with George and 1987's Into the Woods; for her work in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Song and Dance, Peters earned a Tony Award. During the late '80s, she mounted a hit cabaret act, which focused largely on show tunes but also included an effective cover of Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." After a disappointing return to Hollywood, Peters reappeared on Broadway in 1993, starring in The Goodbye Girl; however, the show closed after less than 200 performances. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Bernadette is my favorite performer forever and always! I am only 17 and she just amazes me with everything that she does. I got to see her perform in Buffalo, New York and I even got to meet her afterwards! She is so kind and down to earth. A true star.
I first saw her on the Johnny Carson show, years ago, when she sang You Made Me Love You . She was phenomenal and reduced me to tears.

She is the queen of comedy and acting. Bow done to the queen!!!!

She also voiced the cat Rita on Animaniacs.
I just started getting into the art of stage and film drama, and let me be one of the FIRST guys to say that Bernadette Peters blows me away with her great singing and selfless acts for animals. My mom and I really like her.
I saw her in Follies on Broadway and she was great.

doesnt seem like they included that extensive of a biography for her, but whatever
I saw her in February in Tallahassee. She is phenomenal live.
Bernadette has such classy voice
I was fortunate to witness Ms Peters perform live at the Venetian Room of the Fairmont Hotel, Nob Hill, San Francisco. She only needed a pianist, a bench, a spotlight, and her glorious self to merit a standing ovation. She had the audience in tears when she it was time. She knew every aspect of her performance. She is brilliant!
She was as good as anyone could ever be in A little Night Music and Follies. She can put a song across as good as anyone have ever heard. I have also seen her in concert right after she left Annie Get Your Gun on broadway and she was wonderful. Your corrent bio is way short on praise and in does not come close to giving her the credit she deserves.
Bernadette's Gypsy was the first who was not a monster and many though La Lupone overplayed the part. Plus the conceit of having the orchestra on stage worked for the overture - not the whole first act.
Hey guys! Let's not forget her recent successful turns in Little Night Music and Follies.
Come on Pandora...UP D A T E the Resume! Bernadette has recently done Annie Get Your Gun (despite the fact that she was pushing 60 yrs-old), and then, the revival of Gyspy, which Patti Lupone subsequently trumped a couple seasons later, as a superlative Mama Rose.

Oh I love her soooo much! One of my idols!
She is amazing! I just love her.
after FEWER than 200 shows, not less than
she gives me chills. i love her.
It troubles me that we're speaking in past-tense. Miss Peters is alive and well, still touring, and selling out shows with regular success. I saw her a little over a year ago on her tour (phenomenal, as always) and must say she is as engaging and entertaining as ever. She is also involved in a few activist endeavors. Her work with animals (Broadway Barks) is aimed at providing care for homeless pets.
I was fortunate enough to see her live. When she sang with the San Francisco Symphony. She is a wonderful performer. One of my favorite memories

She was amazing in Into the Woods, I have the recording. One of my favorite musicals, and one of my favorite actresses/si n g e r s .
beautiful and spunky broadway voice, awsome
She is beautiful, talented, and I am so jelouse!! I love listening to her sing, and enjoy watching her perform, especially with Steve Martin.

Amazing star and wonderful singer
I absolutely love her! It's a shame that she didn't have all that great of a run on Broadway. I think she could have gone really far if they only gave her a good chance. Anyways, she's my all- time favorite actress/perf o r m e r , and I think she's just spectacular! !
