"There are singers and there are actresses; there are entertainers and there are stars. And then there is Bernadette Peters. On Saturday night, the nonpareil Broadway artist turned the Valley Performing Arts Center into her own personal salon, with magical results." -- Los Angeles Times (March, 2012)
"We know she can interpret a song and transform that girly talking voice into a huge belt in a heartbeat. But the fun of seeing Peters in concert is witnessing how she uses that natural charisma to flirt with the material. Constantly flipping back her curly red locks, she's coy one minute, a vixen the next, and knows how to work a dramatic pause." -- Mark Lowry, DFW.com (Jan 7, 2013)
"The consummate Broadway star, Peters brought her distinct talent as a true singing actress to New Orleans this week...For concert-goers, this dazzling night will be remembered as the musical highlight of the year." -- Theodore P. Mahne, The Times-Picayune (March, 2013)
