NEW YORK — When Shia LaBeouf dropped out of the Broadway revival “Orphans” because of a tiff with Alec Baldwin, only to be replaced by Ben Foster, the question became: Which of the two actors might take the Tony love from LaBeouf?

As it turns out, it was a moot point.

The show did get an acting Tony nomination, but it was for Tom Sturridge, a little-known actor who had done mostly screen work in his native Britain. And even Sturridge was the exception. Read More

Tom Hanks may have a date with the Tony Awards, but many of Hollywood’s biggest stars didn’t make the grade when nominations for Broadway’s highest honor were announced on Tuesday morning.

Al Pacino, Jessica Chastain and Alec Baldwin were among the big names who found themselves snubbed by Tony voters. The biggest shocks, however, were likely Bette Midler and Fiona Shaw, critical darlings, who Tony tea leaf readers believed were all but guaranteed a nomination. Read More

The new Broadway musical “Kinky Boots” led the pack with 13 nominations for the 67th annual Tony Awards, including for best musical, director, actor, score, and choreographer, while its chief rival “Matilda” had 12 nominations in many of the same categories. The nominations were announced at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. The revival of “Golden Boy” had the most nominations of any play, 8, with the new Tom Hanks play “Lucky Guy” close behind with 6 nominations. Lead acting nods went to only a handful of the Hollywood stars performing on Broadway this season – Mr. Hanks, Laurie Metcalf, Holland Taylor, and Cicely Tyson; among those snubbed were Bette Midler, Jessica Chastain, Katie Holmes, Scarlett Johansson, and Al Pacino. Among the surprises were snubs of “Motown” for a best musical nomination and its star, Brandon Victor Dixon, for best actor. Read More

BetteBack February 22, 1980: Bette Midler going crazy for the camera

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The concert was 40 minutes late in starting. The star finally entered to a roaring ovation, sang a few lines, waved the band to silence and walked off the stage. The curtain fell before an astonished audience.

A scene from “The Rose“?

No, this was the second of four performances of “Divine Madness,” the Bette Midler show that was being filmed as the first venture of The Ladd Company. The audience at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium was relieved to learn that Midler wasn’t pulling a Janis Joplin. Read More

Sue who?

Aside from the fact that she doesn’t sing, the only trepidation I’ve encountered about Bette Midler‘s sensational one-woman show I’ll Eat You Last, about the sassy, splashy, tart-tongued Hollywood super agent Sue Mengers, is the concern that the Divine Miss M might be playing a colorful “insider” so obscure that the general public has never heard of her. Well, the show is such a smash and the Divine Miss M never more divine that you’ll be lucky if you can beg, borrow or steal a ticket to get in. Read More
