Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Bernadette Peters is a glorious anachronism, a tiny New Yorker with a big voice, coppery pre-Raphaelite curls, and the sort of ripe physicality that made it logical she should ignore PC and have legendary pinup artist Vargas capture her for an album cover portrait. While most of her musical peers were getting funky, getting in touch with themselves, or getting high, Peters was honing her skills as a musical actress, setting her compass by Broadway with occasional detours to Hollywood. Now Peters is acknowledged as one of the Great White Way's natural wonders, a bona fide Tony-winning musical comedy star performing here in her first full-length video concert.

Taped in London's Royal Festival Hall, this 1998 performance expands on the same song list as the 1997 Carnegie Hall debut captured in her CD Sondheim, Etc.: Bernadette Peters Live at Carnegie Hall. Like that show, the London appearance leans on Stephen Sondheim's remarkable canon, including both the shows Peters herself starred in (Into the Woods and Sunday in the Park with George) and those she wished she did. Indeed, her stage patter toys with the facts and fiction in her career, a refreshing wink at her own putative diva-hood. While she's clearly a thinking fan's diva, she also radiates a rare sweetness and a lush sensuality. --Sam Sutherland

Had a great night with friends watching this concert.

Everyone knows that Bernadette Peters is one of the most amazing broadway performers, and Sondheim is the king of musical theatre composition.

Who is a two-time Tony Award winner that radiates a rare sweetness and a lush sensuality? Who is scoring rave reviews on Broadway as Annie Oakley in the must-see, smash revival of Irving Berlin's "Annie Get Your Gun?" Only the hottest diva on the stage today, Bernadette Peters.
I remember the first time I watched Bernadette Peters perform. She was a guest on "The Carol Burnette Show." The next time was in the Steve Martin film "The Jerk." I could not figure out why this woman appeared on television or the big screen with her unusual speaking voice, not realizing her career in musical theatre.
Did you know that Ms. Peters made her Broadway debut in 1967 in "Johnny No-Trump?" In 1968, she starred with Joel Grey in the musical "George M," earning a Theatre World Award for her memorable portrayal of Josie Cohan. During that same year, she received a Drama desk Award for her show-stopping performance in the smash off-Broadway hit musical "Dames at Sea." It is no wonder that Ms. Peters quickly became one of the most sought-after stars in musical theatre.
I have gained a new respect for Ms. Peters as a performer throughout the years. One reason was due to learning more about her career. The other reason was Ms. Peters recorded an AIDS benefit concert for the Gay Men's Health Crisis in December 1998 at New York's Carnegie Hall. She sang one of my personal favorites: "Making Love Alone" ("you'll save on cologne").
You now have the opportunity for a front row seat for a dazzling evening of entertainment, "Bernadette Peters In Concert.

Bernadette Peters and Broadway... one in the same.
Hearing or seeing Ms. Peters, either live or on tape never ceases to amaze me. This concert was nothing but pure joy. To see an artist of her caliber perform is always high scale entertainment.
Bernadette's interpretation of both music and lyric is one of a kind, and here we get to see it up close. Her interpretation of Sondheim's music is unlike anyone's. It's no wonder why she enjoys performing his work... she does it flawlessly. The definition of a true artist is one who can convey their feelings and emotions to their audience... and Bernadette more than accomplishes it. As I watched her performance, I felt what she did.. happiness, sadness, joy and regret. And overall incredible evening of performance by a great star.
What makes it even more special to know is that the tender loving Bernadette on stage is the REAL Bernadette. I have had the pleasure of meeting her after a few of her shows and concerts and she's as warm off stage as she is on. A true delight.
If you're a fan of musicals, Stephen Sondheim or music sung and interpreted beautifully, buy this DVD! It will be an evening of performance you won't soon forget!

I love the comment by the editorial writer above that Bernadette Peters is a "glorious anachronism." It's true. She has those Gibson Girl looks and a 30s movie star quality about her. And she has a voice that can melt the hardest of hearts. It's hard not to get a little misty eyed on hearing her version of "Not a Day Goes By" or "The Unexpected Song."
I did buy one of her poppier albums once, the one with her version of the old Carla Thomas song "Gee Whiz," and it was fine stuff, but some people were born to be--dare I say it?--Broadway babies. It really is her metier, and she virtually reigns supreme over Broadway today. Who else even comes close?
The concert format allows Ms. Peters to tackle material not previously associated with her. She mixes a little standard pop into her repertory, but the bulk of the concert is devoted to Broadway, specifically Sondheim. She is so skilled, however, that it in no way seems monotonous. I know a few anti-Sondheim types in my circle of acquaintances, and I would not hesitate to recommend this concert to them. Or to foist it on them, come to think of it.
Is Bernadette Peters an anachronism, glorious or otherwise? Well, Sondheim himself has said that the form is dying, so perhaps in that sense, Peters, as one of Broadway's brightest stars, may be one of the last of a dying breed. However, when you see her handily out-vamp Madonna on "Sooner or Later," you know that she really transcends all genre distinctions in any event. She is, plain and simple, a true star, and in that sense, timeless.

Bernadette Peters remains one of the most striking performers on the musical stage, with a palpable presence reaching for miles. This concert features some of her old gems ("Unexpected Song" "Raining in My Heart" "Time Heals Everything"), a wonderful selection of Sondheim songs, a radiant joy, and a self-assured sense of humor (Too bad "making love alone" wasn't on the video). "Hello Little Girl" is perhaps the only weak moment in the show for my tastes, but cannot even begin to dampen my enthusiasm for Ms. Peters's delightful abilities.
