On Gypsy “Of all the musical comedies I’ve ever known, it’s the one I have the most affection for, because I love the score.

On Gypsy “Of all the musical comedies I’ve ever known, it’s the one I have the most affection for, because I love the score. It’s big. It’s bombastic. It’s bright. It’s American. It’s full of puns and jokes. Sort of like me.” (1993) – Bette Midler

Bette Midler On Experience The Divine:

Bette Midler On Experience The Divine: “I sort of forced people to look at our culture. In a funny way, we’ve become a country that has no culture. And a country without culture is one in deep spiritual and social trouble. Without culture, there are no rituals or anything to hold us together. Today, everyone wants to stand on his or her own square; they don’t want to join in the common culture.” (The Record, 1994)

Bette Midler On Clams:

Bette Midler On Clams: “My big question is whether the lack of friction that usually existed in rehearsals will affect my creativity. Do I really need to pump myself so full of anxiety and fear and loathing and negative things in order to release it during performance? It’s extremely frightening. I was relatively calm until last week and then I think I psyched myself into a fit. I had two or three days that I literally bit people and called them horrendous names. I also started dreaming. Strange dreams. I had a nightmare that David Bowie opened up across the street from me and he had the same sets and he was wearing my costumes.” (Emporia Gazette, April 12, 1975) Read More

BetteBack November 14, 1973: Bette: Acetylene Torch Singer

Pittsburgh Post Gazette
November 14, 1973

img1221

An extremely keyed-up Midler-of-the-road crowed turned out Sunday night at the Syria Mosque to rant and rave over the antics of Bette Midler, who gave as energetic a performance as is humanly impossible.

The short redhead with the hatchet profile devastated the audience not only with her singing and her campy theatrics, but also with her interactions with the backup vocal trio known as The Harlettes, who look just like the girls next door (if you live next to a massage parlour.) Read More

BetteBack: “…now let’s sing it out this time for “Tinkerbell”

Wisconsin State Journal
How’s She.Doing? Great, You Bette!
By DONALD DAVIES
October 17, 1973

The reigning resident kook of showbiz, Bettc Midler, unloosed her own outrageous, schizophrenic self on more than 4,500 appreciative fans Wednesday night in the Dane County Coliseum and gave each more than an inkling of why she is coming on strong as the 1970s high priestess of supercamp.

From the opening shimmy out onto the stage, decked out in frizzled hair, pink ostrich fan, black-and-white slack suit, big red rose in the decolletage, and something like a yellow bird in her hair.singing her theme “You Gotta Have Friends,” she was every bit The Divine Miss M. Read More

BetteBack: The Daring Miss M

Bucks County Courier Times
Bette Midler is a knockout
By GARY LLNDENMUTH
Owner Times Special Writer

From the moment she walked on stage wearing what looked like one of Sophie Tacker’s old corsets, Better Midler was an unqualified smash hit.

“Tbe Daring Miss M” as she humbly refers to herself, closes at the Bijou Cafe in Philadelphia, where she has been knocking over crowds with a full hour’s worth of pure talent and a truly artistic brand of showmanship.

Her level of intensity is amazing. She comes on strong, lifting her audience within seconds to an incredible high and manages to keep them there for the entire act. Read More
