It’s coronation time: Bette Midler is the new queen of Broadway. It really is a cultural moment when Miss M steps up top the plate to make her starring debut in a Broadway musical and knocks it out of the park. Hello, Dolly! is a song-and-dance warhorse, over half a century old, that Midler twists a little, stirs a little, shapes a little, molds a little and –voila! – it’s a musical comedy dream for a new generation to discover.

Bette Midler On Being Compared To Barbra Streisand:

Bette Midler On Being Compared To Barbra Streisand: “First of all, it makes me feel bad for her. I know I’d feel badly if I were Barbra, because everyone likes to think that they’re unique. I also know that no one feels like they’re tugging at someone else’s coattails, pushing against them on a ladder. It can be very irritating.” (Morning Star, August 23, 1977)

Bette Midler, nominated for her performance in HELLO, DOLLY! told BroadwayWorld “I am so delighted and proud to be nominated for a Tony Award, and I hope to hell I win! And if I don’t, I will still have had the most extraordinary experience of my career playing that damned exasperating woman, Dolly Gallagher Levi, in one of the greatest productions of ‘Hello, Dolly!’ this old world has ever seen. I’m very grateful to the American Theater Wing and the Broadway League— and most especially to everyone at the Shubert Theatre who makes me look so good every single night. ” Read More

Bette Midler On Success:

Bette Midler On Success: “Success has made me more secure. I don’t fall into such deep depressions anymore. Now the things that depress me involve frustrations over things I consider injustices towards others…Anita Bryant’s anti-gay stand…the anti-abortion laws. It frustrates me when people’s freedoms are restricted because of other’s beliefs.” (Morning Star, August 23, 1977)
