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.
