New Bernadette interview complete with obligatory Sondheim gushing

Thanks to for the link to this interview with my idol, Bernadette Peters.

Now that "Gypsy" is closed, she's kicking off a concert tour. Looks like the closest she's coming to us is Palm Desert in march.

I have to say her web site sucks for blogging purposes. it's all full of Flash and frames, and no separate links are available to get to specific sub-sections of the site, like the Calendar, or the Palm Desert concert info.

Enough techie talk.

She has seen the recent Broadway production of Sondheim's Pacific Overtures (featuring several cast members from the recent TheatreWorks production. She raves. She also implies that the only thing worth doing after tackling a "role of a lifetime" like Mama Rose, is another Sondheim show. If there isn't one, she reasons, she can just sing Sondheim in her concert.

Hmmm. I wonder what Bernadette would be like as Mrs. Lovett?
