(On being a producer) “It doesn’t pay for me. There’s no money in it.

(On being a producer) “It doesn’t pay for me. There’s no money in it. No money. Not that I care about the money, but I do have a huge overhead and you mustn’t let your overhead own you. If it’s something you don’t believe in–well, I don’t want to be a line producer and I don’t want to be an executive producer if I don’t believe in the material. If it’s something that I do believe in or want to give a shot to, that’s another story. Then I’d be perfectly delighted. But to just produce to be a producer, feh. Big feh.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler Read More

Viva la diva: How divas are dominating Broadway

Viva la diva: How divas are dominating Broadway

There has been an interesting trend on Broadway of late: the rise of musicals that offer up a diva and not much else.

Amid the recent bloodbath on Broadway (RIP Groundhog Day!), the shows that seem impervious at the box office are those offering audiences a chance to see a diva doing her thing. Broadway audiences lucked out this year with quite a trifecta: Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close (a limited engagement that already closed), War Paintwith Patti LuPone and Christine Ebersole, and Hello Dolly with Bette Midler or Donna Murphy. Those five leading ladies have ten Tony Awards among them, with devoted fanbases who clamor for each of them. Read More

(On Sally Field) “She’s very smart. She’s doing exactly what she wants to do.

(On Sally Field) “She’s very smart. She’s doing exactly what she wants to do. It took her a minute to figure out how the business has changed, because it changed right out from under her, when nobody was looking. So that’s what we’re all in for. You can either jump in feet first and go to work or you can stand on the sidelines. Things have changed.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler

Why are Jewish celebrities silent about Charlottesville?

Why are Jewish celebrities silent about Charlottesville?
By: Jeffrey Salkin August 23, 2017

(RNS) Everyone is talking about Billy Joel donning a yellow star while performing at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

My first snarky impulse was to say: Billy, we never knew that you cared.

True enough — both of Billy Joel’s parents were Jewish. His father and grandparents were German-Jewish refugees. He grew up in the middle of Long Island, not far from where I grew up — albeit in a rather un-Jewish neighborhood. Read More
