My favorite moment of NBC’s “Smash” so far: Bernadette Peters belts out number from “Gypsy”
It was a Broadway-loving gay man’s dream come true.
I was watching NBC’s Smash on Monday – my new favorite show (sorry Glee) – and was excited to see the guest turn by the great Bernadette Peters as Ivy’s mom.
It was kind of crazy that Ivy’s director did not know her mom is a Broadway legend and she looks nothing like her daughter but other than that, I loved every minute of it.
Especially this: Miss Peters shows up to her daughter’s workshop rehearsal and it doesn’t take much convincing for her to sing for the cast. She belts out Everything’s Coming Up Roses.
She’s had plenty of practice: the two-time Tony winner starred for an entire year on Broadway as Mama Rose in one of the revivals of Gypsy.
