The Wrap

Published: February 25, 2013

Can any of the major star-driven plays set to open on Broadway over the next few months match the off-stage drama that consumed the theater world last week? It would be hard for any play to top the rumors and Twitter meltdowns that accompanied Shia LaBeouf‘s eleventh-hour exit from “Orphans” with less than a month to go before its Broadway debut.

But fret not theater fans, stars so big they need only use their first names (“Bette” and ‘Tom” and “Alec”) are still on tap to blaze across the greater Broadway area. After all, it’s nearly spring — that time of year when a horde of Hollywood stars make the cross-country pilgrimage to New York to prove their theatrical mettle — and maybe pick up a Tony Award to boot.

It’s very nice that Oscars made a special tribute to movie musicals. The only problem is that not a single one of the musicals honored (Chicago, Dreamgirls, Les Miz) was ever eligible for Oscar’s own category of “Best Original Musical.” That’s right, there really is an Oscar category for Best Original Musical (that’s never actually been activated, but sits there in the Academy rulebook nonetheless) — but it holds that all the songs have to be truly original, which is why adaptations of Broadway musicals are never going to be eligible.

The 15-acre site, located at the corner of the Kapa‘a Bypass and Kuhio Highway, currently has a temporary arena for riders and volunteers to host events. The group currently leases six horses and rescues other horses, who are then trained and tested to serve in the therapy capacity. Read More

“I Never Talk To Strangers”

[B:] “Bartender, I’d like a Manhattan, please.”

[T:] Um, stop me if you’ve heard this one,
but I feel as though we’ve met before.
Perhaps I am mistaken.
[B:] But it’s just that I remind you of
someone you used to care about.
Oh, but that was long ago.
Now tell me, do you really think
I’d fall for that old line?
I was not born just yesterday.
Besides, I never talk to strangers anyway. Read More

BetteBack January 7, 1978: All Aboard On The Bette Midler Party Train

Winnipeg Free Press
Party time rolls around again
January 7, 1978

JanetMacoska

What better time,than the festive holiday season to turn our jaded attention to parties? And what better party than Bette Midler.

Ms. Midler has been known to let her Hair down. In fact, the Wild Woman of the East Is usually about knee deep In the stuff. She Is a carnival In which she plays the sideshow, the barker and all the best rides like the Octopus Osterizer.

She likes to call herself “the last of the tacky ladies” and her act “trash with class.” She likes to admonish her charming backup singers, the Harlettes, to “try to stay vertical until at least the first break, girls.” Read More
