Are these our dreams coming true?
Besides the fact that this woman looks absolutely amazing and can command the stage like no other, she's also got singing chops like you wouldn't believe!
Wanna wet your pants a little???
Then watch Bernadette Peters sing Everything's Coming Up Roses from the infamous classic Gypsy in the (above) clip.
It's as incredible as you can imagine.
We love Megan Hilty and Katharine McPhee, but ladies… THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT!!

Broadway legend Bernadette Peters scored a guest star role on SMASH … and consider us all kinds of elated!
Bernadett is poised to play Leigh Conroy, Ivy's overbearing mother in the next episode of the series. Channeling a bit of her real-life self, Bernadette's character is also a Tony-award winning actress.
Really? Considering the phone call Ivy shared briefly with her in the pilot, we thought she was going to be the polar opposite. Like, Karen's parents! Inneresting!
Check out the promo for SMASH's Episode 7: The Workshop, featuring Bernadette Peters (above)!!
Looks like things are REALLY starting to get interesting on the NBC musical drama!!!
Make sure to tune in when the episode airs Monday, March 19!

The musical theater lover inside us is doing a giddy little happy dance!
Rob Marshall is no stranger to working with the House of Mouse. This is the guy behind the last chapter of Pirates of The Caribbean and their version of Annie. But now, things are about to get a whole lot more interesting for Rob as he has signed a two year contract with the company that not only lines him up to possibly direct the next Pirates venture, but also has led to a pretty incredible announcement.
Rob's first project under this new contract will be to direct a film adaptation of Into the Woods, the classic Stephen Sondheim musical about the real stories behind some famous fairytale characters. Rob reveals that the idea to make the Broadway fave into a film came to him while he was still working on Pirates. It instantly rang James Lapine, Sondheim's partner, to throw the idea around. Rob explains that bringing the project to Disney was spawned after James was concerned the project would just stay in "development for another 10 years." Such was not the case with Disney, as Rob explains:

Bummer! We thought she was FABULOUS in this show!
Earlier this month, we were excited to hear that one our favorite Broadway productions Follies is coming to Hollywood!
We were REALLY hoping that the B'way cast would reprise their roles in El Lay, but now we're hearing that Bernadette Peters will be leaving the show. Sad.
We're sure the Los Angeles version of Follies will still be great…but yeah. We're gonna miss her.
