BWW TV: Bernadette Peters Celebrates Her Birthday Onstage at HELLO, DOLLY!

Last night, the cast of Hello, Dolly! celebrated a milestone birthday of their leading lady, Bernadette Peters, with an on-stage surprise party in front of a sold-out audience.

Audience members were prompted in their Playbills to begin singing "Happy Birthday" at the conductor's cue following curtain call. Cast members also brought out a gorgeous, three-tiered, Dolly-decorated birthday cake in honor of Ms. Peters, and her co-star Victor Garber, then led the audience in singing. Ms. Peters thanked the raucous crowd saying, "Thanks for being here for my birthday! It's not every day a girl turns 39!"
