Happy Birthday to Bernadette Peters/wikipedia
Peters was born Bernadette Lazzara to an Italian-American family in Queens, New York, the youngest of three children. Her siblings are casting director Donna DeSeta and Joseph Lazzara. Her father Peter drove a bread delivery truck, and her mother, Marguerite (née Maltese), started her in show business by putting her on the television show Juvenile Jury at the age of three-and-a-half. She appeared on the television shows Name That Tune and several times on The Horn and Hardart Children's Hour at age five.
In January 1958, at age nine, she obtained her Actors Equity Card in the name of Bernadette Peters to avoid ethnic stereotyping, with the stage name taken from her father's first name. She made her professional stage debut the same month in This is Goggle, a comedy directed by Otto Preminger that closed during out-of-town tryouts before reaching New York. She then appeared on NBC television in A Boy Called Ciske, a Kraft Theatre production, on May 28, 1958, and as Anna Stieman in The Christmas Tree, a Hallmark Hall of Fame production, on December 14, 1958. She first appeared on the New York stage at age 10 in the New York City Center revival of The Most Happy Fella (1959). In her teen years, she attended the Quintano's School for Young Professionals, a former private school that several famous people, such as Steven Tyler, attended.
She knew at at early age what she wanted to do when she grew up - sometimes I think I'm still looking! Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?
