Three-time Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters—who can be seen in two TV series, the Golden Globe Award-winning Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle and CBS All Access’ new The Good Fight—brings her concert tour to the East Coast June 3 when she sings at the Filene Center at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts near Washington, D.C.

The celebrated singing actor will perform signature songs from her award-winning stage career, including tunes from Gypsy, Into the Woods, and Sunday in the Park with George. The concert features musical direction by Marvin Laird. Peters will be accompanied by the Wolf Trap Orchestra.

This was her playlist when her tour came to the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago earlier this year. The list is subject to change for Wolf Trap:

“Let Me Entertain You” from Gypsy
“No One Is Alone” from Into the Woods
“There Is Nothing Like a Dame” from South Pacific
“It Might As Well Be Spring” from State Fair
“Fever”
“In Buddy's Eyes” from Follies
“Losing My Mind” from Follies
“Send in the Clowns” from A Little Night Music
“Being Alive” from Company

Peters won her Tonys for her performances in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Song & Dance and Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun, and she also starred on Broadway in Mack & Mabel, On the Town, Sunday in the Park with George, The Goodbye Girl, and the original production of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods.
