Biography

Bernadette Peters (born February 28, 1948) is an American Tony Award and Golden Globe Award-winning actress and singer. Beginning as a child actress, Peters has established herself as an important stage actress, particularly in musical theatre, as well as a recording star, and an actress in films and television. Peters first reached Broadway in the 1960s. In the 1970s, she took roles in film and television, but in the 1980s returned to theatre, where she has been, for over two decades, one of the most critically acclaimed Broadway stars. Peters also continues to act in films and on television, where she has been nominated for Emmy Awards for three of her appearances.

Peters is particularly noted for her starring roles in the musicals Song and Dance (Tony Award, Best Actress in Musical) , Annie Get Your Gun (Tony Award, Best Actress in Musical), Sunday in the Park with George, and Into the Woods, becoming closely associated with the composers Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber, and in films including The Jerk and Pennies from Heaven, both opposite Steve Martin.

Peters has received many honorary awards over the years, including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (April 1987); the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year (1987); the Sarah Siddons Award for outstanding performance in a Chicago theatrical production (1994); the American Theatre Hall of Fame at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City (1996)
