Biography

Bernadette Peters’ Biography

American actress Bernadette Peters was a five-year-old performer on Horn and Hardart’s kiddie-talent radio program, and by age 11 was appearing on Broadway in Most Happy Fella. Peters achieved national fame in 1968 with her campy performance as Ruby, the 1930s-style chorus girl protagonist of the off-Broadway musical pastiche Dames at Sea.

EXPAND FULL BIO

Bernadette scuttled that stereotype herself as leading lady in the 1969 Joel_Grey musical George M. The following year she played Mabel Normand opposite Robert Preston’s Mack_Sennett in the musical comedy Mack and Mabel, which, though a failure, has become a staple of community theatres. (The amateur Mabels have an ongoing tendency to imitate Bernadette Peters). In 1976, Peters costarred with Richard_Crenna on All’s_Fair, a Norman_Lear TV sitcom that showed neither star to best advantage.

Reluctant to leave her native New York City, Peters has nonetheless occasionally travelled to Hollywood for an off-and-on movie career. Hilarious as a babaloo-ing cabaret entertainer in Silent_Movie (1976), the actress was even better as the long-suffering wife of goony Steve_Martin in The_Jerk (1977). She was reunited with Martin in Pennies_From_Heaven (1981), an uneven but fascinating attempt to juxtapose the fanatasies of 1930s popular music with the grim realities of Depression life.

Offscreen, her relationship with Martin was intensely romantic for several years. Feeling unfulfilled in Hollywood, Bernadette Peters returned to Broadway in the mid 1980s, reclaiming her Dames at Sea prominence tenfold in such musicals as Sunday in the Park With George, Song and Dance, and Into the Woods, nearly unrecognizable in the latter in her heavy makeup as the wizened witch of ‘Hansel and Gretel’ fame.
