by Richard Seff on April 24, 2017

I do so to give what’s now called “transparency” to my words in praise of it. In the last days of the so-called Golden Age of musicals (circa 1962) I was a young theatrical agent specializing in the field of musical theatre, and I represented a handful of promising young composer/lyricists.

Bette Midler On When She Realized She Was A Star:

Bette Midler On When She Realized She Was A Star: “When did I realize I was finally a star? I haven’t realized it yet. It all seems like a fairy tale; and mine’s not really a fairy tale life. So it’s hard to believe it’s me people are talking about.” (Times-Picayune, November 6, 1977)

Tony Awards predictions slugfest: Bette Midler is a lock but upsets loom in other top races

Golden Derby
Tony Awards predictions slugfest: Bette Midler is a lock but upsets loom in other top races
By David Buchanan
Tony Awards May 3, 2017

2017-03-16_6-21-39

Gold Derby’s in-house trio of Tony Awards prognosticators — executive editor Paul Sheehan, contributing writer Sam Eckmann, and myself — met via webcam to discuss our reactions to the May 2 nominations and make early predictions on what productions and performers could win on June 11 (watch our slugfest above).

We jump right into our thoughts on what show will claim the Best Musical prize.

That prompted Paul to astutely compare it to recent Best Musical winner “Once,”  given their smaller scale, chamber musical qualities. Read More
