Where Are The Women Directors In Hollywood And On Broadway

A Sisterhood With a Glass Ceiling

The NY Times devoted the top story in the Arts and Leisure section this past weekend to an exciting thing happening off-Broadway, the fact that women are being regularly hired to direct shows.

The fact that the NY Times needs to announce this as a huge story made me sad because it’s 2013 and the fact that women are getting jobs as directors in the world’s largest theatre city should not be something that needs to be heralded.

Now I know that this analogy is not perfectly comparable, but the fact that women are directing in large numbers off-Broadway is a bit analogous to heralding the successes that women directors are having directing independent films, especially in the area of documentaries.

Full Length Trailer: Phil Spector

Mister D: Again…this is the movie Bette had to back out of due to a neck/back injury. Helen Mirren took her place. It will be fun for me, at least, to imagine how Bette would have tackled the part….

Yes, he wears the afro wig.

Al Pacino goes full Phil Spector in the trailer, below, for the biopic of the infamous record producer written and directed by David Mamet for HBO. “Phil Spector” is centered around Spector’s trial for the murder of Lana Clarkson, with Helen Mirren playing his defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden. (Bette Midler was originally cast in the role, but had to drop out due to a neck injury.) Read More

Audio: “Yellow Beach Umbrella” By Bette Midler

Yellow Beach Umbrella

“Yellow Beach Umbrella”

When I am a flyer, I’ll fly down to Miami,
get a room in one of those big resort hotels.
And nobody there will ever get to know me well.
And nobody there will ever get to know me well.

I’ll be just another yellow beach umbrella
on the shore of the southern sea.
I’ll be a mystery to everyone.
I won’t take you along with me. Read More

BetteBack September 24, 1977: Bette Midler Offered “Stop The World, I Want to Get Off” Musical

Van Nuys Valley News
September 24, 1977

And Harry Brown has an even better idea he is working —a TV special with Bette Midler. She would play the old Anthony Newley role in a revival of “Stop The World, I Want to Get Off.” So guess who is interested in co-starring with her? Laurence Olivier, who is the Divine Miss M‘s most fervent admirer

BetteBack 1977: “A Star Spangled Night for Rights” Turns Sour

Oxnard Press Courier
September 19, 1977

LOS ANGELES (AP) — It was billed as “A Star Spangled Night for Rights.” But the, question was, whose rights?

But comedian Richard Pryor, in a performance that stunned audience members and evoked jeers, was thinking in more general terms.

He criticized the show for emphasizing gay rights over other human rights. Pointing out the sparse showing of blacks in the audience, he said that when the Watts section of Los Angeles was being burned in 1965, “you were doing what you wanted to do on Hollywood Boulevard and didn’t give a damn about it.” Read More
