Bernadette Peters has spent a lifetime bewitching Broadway fans with amazing talent. Peters, although not limited to, is widely known for appearing a large number musicals written by famed composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, including, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park with George, Follies and Gypsy. However, Bernadette will always be known to fans as the original Witch in the hit Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine collaboration, Into the Woods. Following the release of the recent Disney film, based on the musical, Bernadette and others from the original Broadway cast reunited for a series of concerts. In other news, Bernadette also discussed a possible return to Broadway.

Bernadette recently sat down with Playbill where she spoke about the recent Into the Woods reunion series of concerts:

"It was fantastic, It was like being at a rock concert. The one in L.A., especially, because the movie had just come out, and these people were so hungry for the show because it was in New York and maybe they listened to the DVD or the CD."

Bernadette even entertained the idea of returning the Great White Way, adding:

“If something's irresistible, I will return, but if not, I will just go about my business."
