But, you have to wait until October!
Yes, that adorable belting pixie waif known as Bernadette Peters is heading to Benaroya Hall on Friday, October 25, 2013 for a very special show with the Seattle Symphony. The three time Tony winner will perform standards and many hits from her 40 year career (she started VERY young) that include star turns in the original casts of Mack & Mabel, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, The Goodbye Girl, and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Song and Dance. (But, you have to also remember she’s starred in revivals such as Annie Get Your Gun, Follies, A Little Night Music, and On The Town, too…)
She’s a treasure. But, you can only get tickets to the show as part of a Season Package with the Symphony. Individual ticket sales don’t happen until August 3…Mark those calendars.
Personally, our favorite Bernadette Peters memories come from her frequent appearances on the old Carol Burnett Show in the Seventies. She was VERY young but VERY adorable and a terrific comedienne…we in particular cherish her in a spoof of The Exorcist playing the possessed Linda Blair character, Regan.
Here’s more skinny on the concert:

In June 1999 Peters earned her second Tony Award, her third Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for her portrayal of Annie Oakley in one of Broadway’s most popular musicals, the smash-hit Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun. Peters also received Tony nominations for her work in the 1992 musical The Goodbye Girl; Stephen Sondheim’s Pulitzer Prize–winning musical Sunday in the Park with George; the Jerry Herman / Gower Champion ode to the movies, Mack and Mabel; and the Leonard Bernstein / Comden and Green musical On the Town.
