Who: Jennica McCleary as Bette Midler in Divine Deception

When: Friday, July 1, 2016 at 9:30 PM – 10:30 PM in ETD

Where: Metropolitan Room, 34 W 22nd St, New York, New York 10010

Most recently seen as Winifred Sanderson in The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Jennica is now looking forward to her NYC premiere as Bette. A project several years in the making, Divine Deception: A Tribute to Bette Midler first came to life six years ago in Las Vegas thanks to two influential individuals. First encouraged by a friend in the business to impersonate Bette due to her striking resemblance to the diva, it took one special encounter to propel Jennica full steam ahead. After meeting Midler (who mistakenly thought a promotional photo for Divine Deception was a picture of her from the 1970s) in person, Miss McCleary knew she would have to bring her reenactment to the stage.

Americans’ personal connection to the environment, which the founders of Earth Day hoped to restore nearly 50 years ago, is all but lost.

Today 80 percent of American families live in urban areas, the vast majority of which are densely populated and defined by concrete. There are no open vistas, unobstructed night skies or untouched forests.

So when people celebrate Earth Day on April 22, they should not only reflect on how humans connect with the natural environment, but also with the built environment where many Americans actually live. Read More

Chris Cornell of Soundgarden covered “Stay with Me Baby” for the latest Vinyl soundtrack. The cut, originally recorded in 1966 by Lorraine Ellison, has also been done by Bette Midler, Mary J. Blige, and Bob Dylan, among others.

Billboard calls the Cornell version “bluesy,” while Rolling Stone writes that it “taps into Terry Reid’s approach, with a . . . soulful style more indicative of Cornell’s solo work than Soundgarden.” Read More

Last month, Kim Kardashian made the Twittersphere’s collective jaw drop — not because of the umpteenth nude pic she posted, but because she announced that she and Bette Midler were friends.

Well, “fake friends,” according to Kardashian, who attacked Midler after the musical icon teased her.

“Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera,” Midler had tweeted. Read More
