The "Morgan Stanley Moments" series at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts just added legends Smokey Robinson and Bernadette Peters. We reported yesterday on Billy Crystal's upcoming appearance as part of the series.

The king of Motown, Smokey Robinson, has written more than 4,000 songs and served as vice president of Motown records, where he wrote and produced songs like "My Girl" for the Temptations and his own music, including the classic "Tracks of My Tears."

Broadway star and three-time Tony-winning actress Bernadette Peters has been on Hollywood and Broadway stages since age 11. She is known for her comedic musical performances in plays, movies and TV shows such as Into the Woods, Gypsy, Pennies From Heaven and Grey's Anatomy.

Billy Crystal is slated to start the series on Feb. 1, 2017. Robinson will follow on March 3, and Peters on April 21.

Tickets for Billy Crystal go on sale this Friday. Tickets for both Robinson and Peters go on sale Friday, Dec. 2.
