Throughout her career, Tony Award-winning actress Bernadette Peters has dazzled audiences and critics with her performances on stage and television, in concert and in her celebrated recordings.  

Feel free to be dazzled live on Friday as Peters brings her signature voice to the stage at McCain Auditorium.   

In addition to numerous Grammy Award-winning Broadway cast albums, including “Gypsy” and “Annie Get Your Gun,” Peters has recorded six solo albums — hits like “Bernadette Peters Loves Rodgers and Hammerstein” — which earned her a solo Grammy Nomination.

Recently, she starred in the NBC hit television series “Smash.”  

Peters’ many film credits include “The Jerk” with Steve Martin, “The Longest Yard” with Burt Reynolds, “Silent Movie” with Mel Brooks, “Annie” with Carol Burnett, “Pink Cadillac” with Clint Eastwood and many more.
