Raised in Queens, Bernadette started acting even before she started her schooling. Initially she appeared in several television shows and variety hours, however, she started her career as a professional theatre actress at the age of nine, and has since become very prominent and successful in her career. Noted mostly for being the foremost interpreter of Academy winning lyricist and author Stephen Sondheim, Bernadette has performed in several musicals, with some of her most famous work including her performances in musicals like “Mack And Mabel”, “Into The Woods”, “Song And Dance”, “Gypsy” and “Sunday In The Park With George” among others. For her work in theatre, she has won two Tony Awards as well as an honorary award from seven nominations. In addition, Bernadette has won three Drama Desk Awards to date.

Along with theatre, Bernadette has also been active in movies and on television. She has appeared in television shows “The Carol Burnett Show”, “The Muppet Show”, “Saturday Night Live” and many more. More recently, she has been appearing in the Amazon television series “Mozart In The Jungle”, sharing the screen with actors like Lola Kirke, Gael García Bernal, Saffron Burrows and others. Bernadette is also noted for her performances in the movies “The Longest Yard”, “Alice”, “The Jerk”, “It Runs In The Family” and several more. During her career, she has been nominated thrice for Emmy Awards and also thrice for Golden Globe Awards and has won once. Moreover, she has also released several singles and as well as nine solo albums until today. The proceeds from sales of three children’s books written by Bernadette are donated to the animal adoption charity of which she is a co-founder. Needless to say, being a part of all these successful projects has definitely helped Peters amass her present net worth.

Regarding her personal life, the 68 year-old actress now lives her life as a widow, as her husband Michael Wittenberg left the world in 2005 – Bernadette and Michael had been married for nine years. For now, Bernadette enjoys her career as one of the most successful theatre artists and popular film actresses while her present net worth of $5 million caters to her daily life

#Fact
1First cousin of Connie Stevens.
2Is one of 20 actresses who did not receive an Oscar nomination for their Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical Golden Globe-winning performance; hers being for Pennies from Heaven (1981). The others, in chronological order, are: June Allyson for Too Young to Kiss (1951), Ethel Merman for Call Me Madam (1953), Jean Simmons for Guys and Dolls (1955), Taina Elg and Kay Kendall for Les Girls (1957), Marilyn Monroe for Some Like It Hot (1959), Rosalind Russell for A Majority of One (1961) and Gypsy (1962), Patty Duke for Me, Natalie (1969), Twiggy for The Boy Friend (1971), Raquel Welch for The Three Musketeers (1973), Barbra Streisand for A Star Is Born (1976), Kathleen Turner for Romancing the Stone (1984) and Prizzi's Honor (1985), Miranda Richardson for Enchanted April (1991), Jamie Lee Curtis for True Lies (1994), Nicole Kidman for To Die For (1995), Madonna for Evita (1996), Renée Zellweger for Nurse Betty (2000), Sally Hawkins for Happy-Go-Lucky (2008), and Amy Adams for Big Eyes (2014).
3Is a staunch liberal Democrat and feminist.
4Is an animal rights activist.
5Received the Drama League Award for Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theatre in May 2013 in recognition of her contribution to the musical theatre.
6Although she has many Tony nominations and two wins, she is the only actress to not win a Tony Award for a revival of the musical, "Gypsy". Angela Lansbury, Tyne Daly and Patti LuPone all received Tony Awards as best actress in a musical for their performances in "Gypsy" revivals, but neither Peters nor the role's originator, Ethel Merman, ever received the award.
7She was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Live Theater at 6706 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on April 23, 1987.
8On The 57th Annual Tony Awards (2003), she performed the climactic song "Rose's Turn" from "Gypsy", in which she was nominated that year for Best Lead Actress in a Musical. However, she had been suffering from a severe respiratory infection and had missed several performances of the show. Originally, the producers did not want her to perform live at the Tony Awards for fear of her damaging her vocal chords. She refused to cancel and insisted on performing live. She got through the song and received a 2-minute standing ovation, one of the longest in Tony history.
9Was on Broadway in the revival of "Gypsy" in 2003-2004. She performed in the show for a year and did over 500 performances. Peters was offered a national tour of the show, but bowed out saying, "I love this show and the role of Rose, but after playing her for a year she has worn me totally out!" The role of Mama Rose is considered one of the greatest and most difficult roles for a musical theater actress.
10She was involved with Steve Martin, her co-star in The Jerk (1979) and Pennies from Heaven (1981), prior to his marriage to Victoria Tennant.
11Her husband, Michael Wittenberg died in a helicopter crash in Montenegro, Europe on September 26, 2005. An investment advisor, he was reportedly on a business trip.
12Is the youngest of three children of Peter and Marguerite Lazarra.
13Has won two Tony Awards as Best Actress (Musical): In 1986 for "Song and Dance" and in 1999 for a revival of "Annie Get Your Gun". In addition, she has received five other Tony nominations: one as Best Supporting or Featured Actress (Musical) in 1972 for a revival of "On the Town"; and four other Best Actress (Musical) nominations: in 1975 for "Mack and Mabel"; in 1984 for "Sunday in the Park with George", a performance she recreated in the television version with the same title, American Playhouse: Sunday in the Park with George (1986); in 1993 for "The Goodbye Girl"; and in 2003 for a revival of "Gypsy".

1"Into the Woods" was... a lot of running around in the woods! I can't wait to see the show again. People didn't realize it back then, but kids still come up to me-young people-and they talk about it. It really made its mark.
2"It Might as Well Be Spring"... I used to sing that as a young girl in my voice lessons. Then I picked it up again and it spoke to me in a whole new way.
3It was one of the most exciting, perfect evenings of my life, my solo debut at Carnegie Hall. And knowing we were all there to raise money for Gay Men's Health Crisis made the evening an extraordinary experience.
4Sondheim writes the music and lyrics, and because he's so smart and goes so deep with his feelings, there's a lot to explore, get involved with and learn about.
5Stephen Sondheim told me that Oscar Hammerstein believed everything that he wrote. So there's great truth in the songs, and that's what was so wonderful to find.
6George M. is where I met my dear friend Joel Grey. We connected at rehearsal one day during a five-minute break. We were both looking out the same window and we knew in five minutes that we'd made a connection.
7I lost a very dear friend who lived with AIDS for about 17 years. Rejecting early treatments that were iffy, he thought he saved himself. I really miss him a lot.
8In my career, there have been three things that were challenging: playing gay; playing a Jewish woman; and playing Chekhov. The scariest part was playing Chekhov!
9Working on behalf of companion animals is so important. We start to realize how healing they are.
10Animals speak with pure affection. It's important to me to get something going in New York so we can get to be a no-kill city, and give the animals homes and more attention and love.
11The first big lead that I had on Broadway was in a show called "La Strada".
12The first Broadway show I ever heard was the recording of "Carousel", and it was a very vivid experience.
13We've been listening to Wagner, which is so great.
14When something isn't done, you want to do something about it.
15When there's a terrible illness like AIDS sweeping through, you help people.
16I feel strongly for gay marriage to be accepted.
17I know Mama Rose is a great role and I love having a chance to do it.
18I love "Some Enchanted Evening", and "If I Loved You". And as I sing them more and more, I find new favorites.
19I'd like to one day play Amanda, the mother, in "The Glass Menagerie".
20The challenge of film is making it right there at that moment, and then you get to move on.
21I love pasta with the homemade marinara sauce I had as a kid.
22"No One Is Alone" by Stephen Sondheim is all about thinking for yourself and being your own person.
23You'd look out and there'd be little babies watching the show, and boys and girls. They loved the cowboys, and they loved Annie. There were young people seeing the show for the first time. I stayed for two years because I enjoyed it so much.
24Getting plenty of sleep is always great. It really is. I have a girlfriend who's sending me a slant board.
25I don't smoke, I don't drink much, I don't eat red meat. I stay out of the sun.
26You gotta be original, because if you're like someone else, what do they need you for?
