(On The Divine Miss M character) “She’s just a character. I didn’t bury her.

(On The Divine Miss M character) “She’s just a character. I didn’t bury her. I love that character. That’s the only character that I ever made up by myself. I made her up out of whole cloth. I was in New York, I saw these people, I looked at these movies, I said, “This is what I want to be.” And that’s what I became. That’s what I made up. But then I didn’t want to get stuck in it, like how John Belushi did with his character. I didn’t want that character to run my life. I wanted to be able to go away somewhere and be quiet, be by myself and have a life. I really did want that more than anything. I never exactly put it in those words, but I really wanted to be who I always was. I mean, I didn’t think that anybody would buy what I had to say when I was just myself, because really I’m kind of a bore. But that character, there was nothing boring about her. She was lively, she had red hair, she swore, she wore dresses cut down to there, everybody loves that. Who wouldn’t want to be that? But that wasn’t what I was. I was never that. Not for a second. But I put it out and people were charmed by it.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler Read More

Hamilton continues to lead the pack, taking in nearly $3 million ($2,964,052), followed by Hello, Dolly! at $2,198,977, and The Lion King with $2,053,299. Read More

(On what she does with her money) “Not a goddamn thing. I don’t do anything with it. I give a lot of it away. I like charity. I like gardens. And travel. My husband says my life is wasted on me. He said no one should have as much good fortune as me and not have any idea what to do with it. I don’t pay any attention to it.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler

New Yorkers, we need to have a talk. Between saving all your pennies to finally see “Hamilton” — the cheapest we’ve recently heard someone getting a ticket on the secondary market is $400 — and the many delights of summer in the city, we’ve let our theater attendance slip.

Remedy it during NYC Broadway Week when tickets are 2-for-1 at many of the newest and most popular productions to get you into those crushed velvet-covered seats. Sales are open now for performances taking place Sept. 4-17 by 23 shows, 12 of which are new to Broadway Week. Read More

(On being a director) “To tell you the truth, I’m no dummy. Directing is just a bitch. And it’s years out of your life.

(On being a director) “To tell you the truth, I’m no dummy. Directing is just a bitch. And it’s years out of your life. And you are in a dark editing room a lot of it. You’d better like that person you are in there with because you’re there, you’re locked. It’s a lot like making records. Sometimes it gets so claustrophobic in those little dark rooms, it’s hard. And I don’t want to do that much work. I don’t want to work that hard for no money. I would rather work a little and make a lot of money than work like a dog and make nothing.” (1991, Movieline) – Bette Midler Read More
