Bernadette Peters says singing Sondheim is “like meditating”

“Pieces of the roles you’ve played stay with you,” said actress Bernadette Peters in a recent article for The Guardian. “You have your own experience of a show as a performer and then each of the audience members has theirs, too.”


After a 10 year hiatus from the stage, Peters was brought back to Broadway to act in Stephen Sondheim‘s Sunday in the Park with George. She speaks of Sondheim as a pioneer – someone who is ahead of his time and believes that his works are beautifully constructed. She said, “I used to wait every night to be able to sing Move On, which got to be like meditating – it was so healing and uplifting.”
