Richard Jordan: Fail to think about the audience, and they will fail to think about you

The Stage
Richard Jordan: Fail to think about the audience, and they will fail to think about you
by Richard Jordan – Jun 29, 2017

As a 15-year-old in 1990 watching a preview of The Comedy of Errors from the balcony at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, I was given one of the most valuable lessons in overseeing the art of playing a house.

A few rows in front of me was the play’s director, Ian Judge, and his creative team. Throughout the performance, they were not only looking closely at the stage but also at what was going on behind and around them, observing the reaction of the audience to the production and, in particular, how the jokes were landing.

Ouch! Bette Midler aims very snide fat joke at key Trump aide

Ouch! Bette Midler aims very snide fat joke at key Trump aide

Bette Midler frequently employs her acid tongue when it comes to Trump commentary.

Talk about hitting a man when he’s down.

But then, Bette Midler’s never held back on her low opinion of Donald Trump’s presidency, so it’s probably no surprise that the sharp-witted performer couldn’t resist a dig at the US President’s under-fire press secretary Sean Spicer, even if it did involve getting a little personal.

There’ve been numerous reports over the past fortnight that Trump is looking to replace Spicer, whose time in the high-profile role has been filled with embarrassment. Read More

Maybe it sounds like sour grapes … but I turn the television on and, for the most part, so much of it is garbage. It’s incessant.

“Maybe it sounds like sour grapes … but I turn the television on and, for the most part, so much of it is garbage. It’s incessant. Even the news is garbage,” Midler says. “When you watch the news, you used to get the news. Michael Jackson, yes, he did this or didn’t do it. But it’s not more important than what happened in Iraq. It simply isn’t. And this Laci, this guy who did or didn’t kill his wife — this is not news.” (2004)

Jimmy Awards host Ben Platt to Bette Midler: Let’s ‘swap’ Broadway roles’

Hello, Benny?

“Dear Evan Hansen” star Ben Platt went fanboy while hosting the National High School Musical Theatre Awards on Monday night, gushing about “Hello, Dolly!” star Bette Midler and jokingly suggesting that the two Tony winners “swap roles.”

He even auditioned — though he failed the real test. Donning a red feathered headdress like the one Midler wears during her show’s delectable title song, Platt was forced to admit he didn’t have the chops. “This thing’s heavy,” he said. Read More

I did my best work there.(for the movie, “The Rose”)It was a time all my dreams were coming true

“I did my best work there.(for the movie, “The Rose”)It was a time all my dreams were coming true,” she said wistfully. “I still work with those wonderful people. There’s a little bit of The Rose in the show. We have a couple of songs from it, When a Man Loves a Woman and Keep on Rocking. And we have a couple of surprises to go along with it.” (Ohio Beacon Journal, Jan 1, 2004)

Carol Channing, The Original “Dolly,” Praises Bette Midler’s Tony Win
“She has done us all proud!”
by Dan Avery 6/13/2017

Bette Midler was the dame of the evening at Sunday’s Tonys, winning the award for Best Actress in a Musical for Hello Dolly—and telling producers to “Shut that crap off!” when they tried to play her off.

In her speech, Midler thanked producers, mentors and co-stars, as well as Carol Channing, who originated the role of Dolly Levi in the show’s original 1964 Broadway production. Read More
