Bernadette Peters: Seen It All Before
Little Love and I are driving to Philly tomorrow after work to see Bernadette Peters perform at the Mann Center. It's impossible to pass up the opportunity to see and hear Bernadette perform when she's so near by. After all, Philadelphia is practically the sixth borough . At age 60, Bernadette seems never to change - in looks or routine. We've seen the Bob Mackie dress, we've seen the curls, we've seen the show, including the jokes and set list. Seen it all before. Many times. But, those many times of seeing it all before never add up to seeing it enough. So, it's imposible to pass up the opportunity to see and hear Bernadette perform when she's so near by. Bernadette is one of the warmest and loveliest performers I know. Wait, make that one of the warmest and loveliest people I know. She makes you feel at home, whether she's glancing at you from the stage or giving you a hug backstage or at a stagedoor - even when it's not her stagedoor. So we'll see it all again and be very happy for it.
