On Getting Rid Of Certain Songs And Characters In Her Act: “I was looking at a review of John Prine the other day and he’s singing the same songs that he sang when I first met him many years ago. I guess that’s basically what a career is…you have your great songs and your great characters and you do them. But for me, at least, I’d like to say goodnight to a couple of them. It’s the millennium, you know, the perfect time to let them have their last gasp of glory in the sun.” (Toledo Blade – Oct 8, 1999) Read More

On Entertaining The Masses: “I’ve tried to keep it cheerful and upbeat, and not so dark, The trend over the last 9 or 10 years has been toward so much darkness…

On Entertaining The Masses: “I’ve tried to keep it cheerful and upbeat, and not so dark, The trend over the last 9 or 10 years has been toward so much darkness. I’m talking about a darkness that used to be in a tiny segment of the world or city, but now, everything is so dark and ironic and cynical. There doesn’t seem to be much joyousness. I’ve always felt that basically what I do convey is a certain amount of joy” (Toledo Blade – Oct 8, 1999)

BetteBack March 19, 1996: Who Will Play Mame In The TV Adaption

Daily Herald Suburban Chicago

Jerry Herman is determined to see his classic, “ Marne,” as a TV spectacular. There was talk that Bette Midler might do it (she brought ratings glory to the small tube with “Gypsy”). But now I think Bette won’t.

Who might? How about the divine Liza Minnelli? No longer a gamin, Liza would perfectly fill the role of the sophisticated but wacky Marne Dennis.
