You loved her in The Jerk. Or maybe you loved her in Sunday in the Park with George. Or maybe you loved her on Will & Grace. At some point, you fell in love with Bernadette Peters. Its easy to do. Shes got those big, lush pipes she wraps around songs, that breathy voice that always seems on the verge of a coquettish giggle, that mass of hair. Bernadette Peters is the total package: actress, singer, comedienne and philanthropist (dogs and AIDS are her favored causes). And now that shes conquered your heart, she comes to St. Louis to claim her prize: the big stage at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949 or www.touhill.org). At 8 p.m. this evening, Peters performs her concert spectacular; the songs of Sondheim, Webber and Rodgers & Hammerstein are not just part of her repertoire, theyre practically her birthright. Tickets for this one-night-only show are $50 to $75 -- dont miss this chance to fall in love all over again.
