She won the coveted Tony® Award for her portrayal of Grizabella in the original Broadway cast of Cats and has appeared in many shows, including Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard, both in London’s West End and on Broadway. She has acted in numerous films, starred on television and is a three-time Grammy®Award nominee. Buckley most recent recording project was with her longtime friend and collaborator, producer T Bone Burnett, to record Ghostlight, an eclectic collection of songs that once again showcases Buckley’s unique gift for interpretation.

“…Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley)… is such a glowing star of musical theater, from Cats to Grey Gardens, that you might forget what a superb dramatic actress she is.” Rollingstone (Read full review here!)
