DavidJ here,

Thanks for posting Jean. You're right that was a very interesting interview - wonder what the phone call is about, another exciting career move I hope!

How gracious Bernadette is, answering the "Tony" question - so "unstarry" - is that a word? It makes her even more of a star in my eyes.

Here are passages from the interview that I found especially revealing, and really show Bernadette for the thoughtful and gracious person she is:

"BFP: You’re pretty well-known for your Sondheim collaboration, but that’s hardly your entire career. Is that what you want to be known for? How would you sum up what you’d like your legacy to be and what you’d like to be known for?

BP: I never think about that. Every time I want to plan something it just never comes out that way. Whenever I plan something, forget it! Now I’ve just learned to let the universe bring me what it’s supposed to bring me and do the best I can with that and try to fulfill what I do as best I can. (She pauses.)

I think touching people. Reaching people, touching people. I think that’s probably what I look for — not that I look for, but I think it touches me, or I connect to it, and hopefully the audience connects to it, and somehow they leave feeling something, or thinking about something. And certainly — I don’t write it; that’s why it’s so great to have Steve, because I start thinking about it, and then they start thinking about. Or I start feeling something, and they start feeling something.

The human condition: We all feel, and that’s important. Most of us.

BFP: What are your thoughts on the Tonys, both the good, getting the honor for your volunteer work with Broadway Barks, but also not getting a nomination for Follies?

BP: I have two Tonys, and I think this is a great, a great — to be singled out for this, I think, is a great honor — and which may have knocked me out of the box for the other thing. Who knows? (laughs)"

I'm new to this site and I'm a fairly new Bernadette fan when I was like 1 I saw Cinderella and my mom told me I loved her but didn't really understand who she was but I loved her ever since that movie but I just remembered how much I loved her in that movie and how good a person she is so now I'm hooked and I just wanted to post something so I didn't feel left out

I really hope she adds "Send in the Clowns" to her set list.
