Bernadette Peters
Three-time Tony Award winner, Bernadette Peters is regarded by many as the foremost interpreter of the work of Stephen Sondheim having starred in Sunday in the Park with George (Tony Award Nomination) Into the Woods, Mama Rose in Gypsy, the most recent revivals of A Little Night Music, replacing Catherine Zeta Jones as Desiree Armfeldt as well as the Kennedy Center Production and limited Broadway engagement of Follies in which she was praised by critics for her rendition of “Losing My Mind’ that was “simply shattering.” During this glamorous evening, Peters promises music by Sondheim, Rodgers & Hammerstein, other Broadway composers as well as standards from the Great American Songbook.

She was honored with the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Emma in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Song and Dance and Annie Oakley in the 1999 revival of Annie Get Your Gun. Other notable Broadway performances include Mack and Mabel and The Goodbye Girl with music by Marvin Hamlisch. At the 66th Annual Tony Awards in 2012 Ms. Peters was presented with the honorary Isabelle Stevenson Award for her humanitarian efforts with her own charity Broadway Barks and as a Board Member of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS

She has also appeared in more than 30 feature films or made for television movies and is Emmy Award nominated for guest starring roles on the small screen. Presently Peters is proud to be streaming on Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle as well as CBS All Access The Good Fight.

Peters has released three solo CDs and was Grammy Award nominated for all of them. She travels to San Francisco with her trio lead by longtime Musical Director, Conductor and Arranger Marvin Laird, whom she met at age 13 when she was in the second national tour of Gypsy as an understudy for “Dainty June.” Laird was the assistant conductor for the tour and recalled hearing her sing an odd phrase or two and thinking “God that is a big voice out of that little girl.”
