Broadway legend Bernadette Peters will make her Auditorium Theatre debut performing with the Boston Pops Orchestra this spring. The two-time Tony Award winner will perform a selection of Broadway standards and American songbook classics on March 31, in what the Auditorium says will be her first performance in Chicago in more than a decade.
In the first half of the concert, conductor Keith Lockhart will lead the Pops through renditions of the Gershwins’ An American in Paris and Rhapsody in Blue; Peters will join the orchestra for the second half of the show. Tickets are on sale now, and range from $35 to $126.
Peters, who last appeared on Broadway in Follies in the 2011–2012 season, has performed regularly in the Chicago area over the years, often at the Ravinia Festival in suburban Highland Park. She currently appears on the Amazon Prime series Mozart in the Jungle, and will also be in the cast of The Good Fight, CBS’s streaming spinoff of The Good Wife, premiering in February.
