“Doll House” And Bette’s Song “The Late Show”

Mister D: As I said before, Bette co-wrote a couple of songs from this play, “Doll House.” She had written it during the time before “No Frills.” Not sure if she was going to try and add it or not.

It was written by David Forman, Rob Hyman (Cyndi Lauper, The Hooters), and Bette Midler.

It’s called “The Late Show.”

You can find the video of Mr. Forman talks about the show. The actress they show is singing Ms. Midler’s song….you can hear some of her influence in it. Read More

Reminder

Ahmet Ertegun was a genius at popular music. One of the co-founders of Atlantic Records, he is profiled in “American Masters: Atlantic Records: The House That Ahmet Built.”

Narrated by Bette Midler, who was discovered by Ertegun performing at a convention, the program traces Ertegun from his birth in Istanbul, Turkey, to his world travels as the son of a Turkish diplomat. When he and his brother moved to Washington, D.C., with his father, they were finally able to satisfy their love of American jazz. Read More

Best Selling Author Barbara Kingsolver Book Signing To Benefit NYRP

Mister D: I’m assuming (yes, I know) that this is in New York! This information comes from a fabulous site, Cruelist Month

An Evening with Barbara Kingsolver
Lecture and book signing
Thursday, May 3rd, 6:30 pm
The Great Hall
7 East 7th Street at Third Avenue

The box office at 416 West 42nd St. is open noon-7 p.m.

Barbara Kingsolver, bestselling author of The Poisonwood Bible, will be speaking at The Cooper Union’s Great Hall about her new book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, which chronicles the year she and her family vowed to spend eating a locally-produced diet and avoiding food transported by the use of fossil fuel. This local-food project was the culmination of Kingsolver’s longstanding conviction that America has lost its way when it comes to the production and consumption of food. Kingsolver’s book makes a compelling case for putting the kitchen back at the center of family life and diversified farms at the center of the American diet. Read More
