Playbill.com correspondent Ben Rimalower offers a list of his top albums featuring Tony Award-winning actress Bernadette Peters.
For as long as I can remember, I have loved Bernadette Peters. And who hasn't? Her luscious voice and compelling vulnerability, combined with old-school show business know-how, have made her a top Broadway star through decades of changing tastes, while her seemingly ageless beauty and undeniable sex appeal have helped establish her as a well-regarded entertainer in the mainstream of pop culture. Other than a minor hit on the pop charts with "Gee Whiz" in 1980, Peters' impact as a recording artist has been mostly limited to musical theatre fans, but within that realm, her presence has been impressive.
