Three-time Tony winner Bernadette Peters stars in A Bed and a Chair: A New York Love Affair, a collaboration between Tony-winning composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and jazz musician-composer Wynton Marsalis, which began its limited engagement at New York City Center Nov. 13.



The cast also boasts Tony nominees Norm Lewis and Jeremy Jordan, Cyrille Aimée and dancers Meg Gillentine, Tyler Hanes, Grasan Kingsberry and Elizabeth Parkinson.

Conceived by Peter Gethers, Jack Viertel and Doyle, the musical event features Sondheim's music arranged and performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Marsalis. David Loud is the musical supervisor.

A Bed and a Chair: A New York Love Affair, presented by the combined forces of City Center’s Encores! program and Jazz at Lincoln Center, "celebrates love in New York and love of New York. Native Manhattanite Sondheim and adopted citizen Marsalis (originally from New Orleans) will compare musical notes on their shared passion for our city," according to press notes.

Here's a look at the production:
