The first piece in the Bette Midler Project is “Bette And Me” written by Wendy Wasserstein. In the show, Wendy and the Divine Miss M get their hair done, try on makeup and row a boat in the Hudson River. They finally end up at Radio City Music Hall, where Wendy rises from the orchestra pit on a half-shell with a blonde wig and six-foot eyelashes.
The second piece in The Bette Midler Project is “Bette And I” written by Ira Bauer-Spector. With references to some of Bette’s popular songs and movies, this show follows Ira and the Divine Miss M as they zip through memories and fantasies, exploring what it means to be a fabulous outcast.
