Widely considered one of the most legendary Broadway stars of all time, Bernadette Peters’ talents extend far beyond the Great White Way. Her trophy mantel bows under the weight of multiple Tony, Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe, and Drama Desk Awards—and NASA scientists recently discovered a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame that bears her name. However, the stage remains the natural habitat for her huge, warm voice, which instantly shrinks even cavernous concert halls in its rush to connect with live audiences.
The Los Angeles Times heralded a recent performance as “magical” thanks to the “purity in her upper register and a still potent ability to locate a song’s emotional content.” As Peters draws from a vast concert repertoire assembled from a theatrical career that began at age 5, the crimson-haired icon displays the chops and charisma that elevated her interpretations of so many Stephen Sondheim musical roles, including Dot and Marie in Sunday in the Park with George, the ugly old witch in Into the Woods, and Mama Rose in Gypsy.

About Paramount Theatre
A lot has changed in the century since the Paramount Theatre was founded, but the theater's crowd-pleasing entertainment wouldn't have been out of place in Aurora's turn-of-the-century theater scene. When the Venice-inspired art-deco venue was first built, it joined an already-bustling local tradition of vaudeville, silent films, concerts, and circus acts. Photographs dating back to 1931 guided a 1976 restoration, in which artisans completely retraced and repainted eight original murals, re-gilded the fluted columns, and patched up the sheets of every ghost. Concerts, comedy, and community events fill the theater when it's not occupied by the dazzling production values of a professional musical-theater company, which launched what the Chicago Tribune called a "thrilling debut season" in 2011.
