Bernadette Peters


Broadway legend Bernadette Peters boasts an illustrious career of singing, acting and writing that spans more than five decades. A daughter of a bread delivery truck driver, the New York native began her career in acting on television at the age of three when her mother put her on the show Juvenile Jury, leading to additional appearances on the shows Name That Tune and The Horn and Hardart Children’s Hour. By age nine she acquired her Actors Equity Card and, after a few more years taking on various roles, made her broadway debut at age 13 in the second national tour of Gypsy as one of the Hollywood Blondes and as an understudy for the Dainty June role—a performance that became the launch pad for the acting dynamo’s supersonic career.

Included among her vast sum of appearances across mediums are her roles in stage productions of Dames at Sea, On the Town, Mack & Mabel, Sunday in the Park with George, Song and Dance, Into the Woods, The Goodbye Girl, Annie Get Your Gun and Gypsy; in films Silent Movie, Pennies from Heaven, Annie and Disney’s Anastasia; and in TV shows All’s Fair, The Muppet Show, Saturday Night Live, Ally McBeal, Bobbie’s Girl and Grey’s Anatomy. She has performed in concert at many major venues including Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, Royal Festival Hall, Lincoln Center and Hollywood Bowl. Peters continues to tour around the US, gracing concert halls across the country with her knockout voice.

Bernadette Peters’ outstanding accomplishments have been recognized repeatedly over the years in the form of numerous awards, including a Golden Globe Award for her role as Eileen in Pennies from Heaven, three Drama Desk Awards, two Tony Awards and the honorary Isabelle Stevenson Award for “making a substantial contribution” to humanitarian efforts. Her other accolades include a great many additional nominations for the Tony, Drama Desk, Grammy, Emmy and Golden Globe Awards.
