Could Bette Take Home Her Second Tony? It’s Highly Possible!

The Huffington Post
Best Actress in a Play Tony Race — It’s Never Too Early to Start Thinking Ahead
By Cara Joy David

I love tough Tony Award races. I love when there are so many eligible contenders for a given category, I don’t even know who is going to be nominated. So I am super excited about the Best Actress in a Play Tony Award category.

In my decade plus career, I don’t remember a better slate of contenders than we have this year. There are so many people who any other year would be nominated, but this year will fall short. With so many shows left to come, it may seem a little early to start talking about Tony categories. Insiders know however — it’s never too early to start thinking about the Tony race. After all, many producers make decisions based on the races. Producers rush certain shows in during weak seasons. It’s very rare that the Tony Awards Administration Committee (which decides category eligibility) denies a petition, so producers often choose whether to petition to move an actor up to lead or down to featured based on the competition in a given category. (Performers listed above the title are generally eligible in Best Actress/Actor, performers below the title in the featured categories. The Administration Committee can change this and so, for example, one would think Kate Arrington, above-the-title for Grace, would be considered featured if the producers petition the Administration Committee accordingly.)

Audio: “Paradise” By Bette Midler

[wpaudio url=”http://www.bootlegbetty.com/audio/09 Paradise.mp3″ text=”Bette Midler – Paradise.mp3″ dl=”0″]

“Paradise” By Bette Midler

There is a land I know
where lovers go and flowers grow
forever more;
where time is standing still
and lovers fill the quiet places
by the shore.

We will cross the rainbow
to a place where we’ll be free,
and he’ll give his love to me.
So I wait for the day
when he takes me away to

Paradise.
He’ll take me by my hand.
We’ll walk along the sand.
It’s never-never land.
Whoa-oo, whoa-oo, whoa. Read More

BetteBack July 19, 1977: Bette Turns Down Anita Bryant Debate

Van Nuys Valley News July 19, 1977
Midler speaks on gay rights
By MARILYN BECK

Bette Midler has turned down Rolling Stone Magazine‘s request to do battle with Anita Bryant in a gay rights debate. She doesn’t feel she’d be equal to such a match.

“She’d find passages from the Bible to try and support her position, and I’m afraid I’d end up speaking from raw emotion,” says the Divine Ms. M, who prides herself on having a large gay following and says she also takes pride in her belief that. “No one should be persecuted.” . Read More

BetteBack July 16, 1977: Bette Mider Offered Role In “Happy End”

Colorado Springs Gazette
July 16, 1977

Bette Midler has been offered a ton of money to take over the female lead in “Happy End,” the Kurt Weill revival currently on Broadway.

And her first major film will not be for Columbia Pictures, which was contracted for a year ago. Instead, she will star in the movie version of the musical “Seesaw,” which is also Michael Bennett‘s (“A chorus Line“) first directorial chore for Universal Pictures.
