Here is an interesting interview where she discusses: Kramer (and singing his song); Broadway songs on TV; "What would you like to play"; a new recording (maybe); playing "dialogue that is not there"; and that rare atmosphere of "divadom".

"Q: Your last Broadway musical was the revival of ďFollies,Ē which was so well-received.

A: That was an amazing show. It was probably one of the hardest things Iíve done, because everything thatís not being said is what youíre playing. Youíre playing the dialogue that is not there."

"Q: You worked in that show with Elaine Paige. Do all Broadway divas know each other?

A: (Laughing) Well, I suppose I do. Elaine is so much fun and just so talented. And when we do an event, weíre all there, and we get to be with each other for a night or rehearsal the day before. All the women are terrific. When I did the Stephen Sondheim birthday concert (in 2010), there was Patti LuPone, Audra McDonald and Elaine Stritch, whom I love."

"Q: Itís been a few years since youíve released a solo album. Will there be anything soon?

A: (Coyly) Sort of ... I think thereís something happening ... (giggling) Weíll see."

Added on Nov 28:

"Q: Youíve done so many great roles. What would you like to play?

A: (Giggling) Iím always afraid to say them out loud, because then Iíll have to go do them. Right now, I like resting."

I have wanted to ask her the same question about Kramer's Song. Nice interview.

Hi folks. I went to the concert in Scottsdale. Probably been to more than a dozen over the years. I will always love Bernadette, but this was the first concert where she seemed to struggle abit. Always in the past there has been such energy, joy, and fun. She does seem tired. I wish her well, hope she can get some rest, and yes I will be back for more concerts.

Special shout-out to Jean and all the 'old' board members!

And a big "hello, hope things are well" to you, Jim.

I suspect that the back-to-back shows (A Little Night Music and Follies) were more tiring than we can have imagined; also, she was away from home with Follies, which may have affected her. She has certainly made it clear in numerous interviews that she wants a rest and that she will be very particular in returning to the stage/theater.

Let's hope that she finds what she is looking for.
