Format: Audio CD
Bernadette Peters represents a glimpse of the "golden age" musical theatre diva, but in a decidedly more contemporary light. During her career on stage she has played some of the best female musical roles, and originated parts in two of Stephen Sondheim's greatest works.

Audiences first noticed Bernadette Off-Broadway in 1968, where she played Ruby in the charming 1930s musical parody DAMES AT SEA. From there, she was saucer-eyed silent actress Mabel Normand in the original cast of Jerry Herman's MACK AND MABEL (her rendition of "Time Heals Everything" is yet to be bettered).

In the 1980s, Bernadette zig-zagged her way between exciting musicals from Andrew Lloyd Webber (SONG AND DANCE, in which she nabbed her first Tony Award); and Stephen Sondheim (SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE and INTO THE WOODS). Peters has always been particularly associated with the works of Sondheim, so much so that she was the perfect choice to play Fay Apple in a concert revival of his cult flop favourite, ANYONE CAN WHISTLE.

The late nineties brought Peters her second Tony Award for a well-received revival of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN (the show continued for several years with a slew of replacements, the best of the bunch being a very surprising Reba McEntire). In 2003, Peters took on the demanding Mama Rose in GYPSY, earning another Tony nomination, yet the production received mixed reviews and closed with little fanfare.

Constantly touring with her concert shows and also active within the animal rights community (she founded Broadway Barks! with Mary Tyler Moore); let's hope that Ms Peters doesn't leave it too long before returning to the Broadway musical stage. This disc is the perfect reason why she's regarded as a true Legend of Broadway.

A magnificent performer , have loved her for ever !!!!!!!! She can do no wrong and this album is further proof . When you see her live she acts every song and this comes through in all her albums .Bernadette toured Australia earlier in the year , physically and vocally she is ageless , better than ever. This album has a great choice of songs and the recording quality is great as always !!!!!!!!!
