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

Can’t keep a good Dolly down

Can’t keep a good Dolly down

Looong ago I told you Bette Midler waves bye-bye to “Hello, Dolly!” in January. With her salary plus percentage, she doesn’t need more bows, more bucks, or more pirouetting in high heels and tight corsets. Dec. 1, she’ll be 72, and just tumbled onstage mid-performance. Her people already consulted lawyers to determine if that flop — the tumble not the performance — is actionable. Like, to talk plain — when, which, who, what — can we sue over this. Read More

On Experience The Divine Tour: “I haven’t been in the Bette Midler business for the past 10 years: I’ve been in the Touchstone film business, pretty much.”

On Experience The Divine Tour: “I haven’t been in the Bette Midler business for the past 10 years: I’ve been in the Touchstone film business, pretty much.” Midler’s contract with Disney’s Touchstone has two pictures to go. “They have their ideas. I’ve been good, I’ve done good work, I’ve had a lot of fun with them, but I’m looking forward to doing my own thing.” (1991, Washington Post) – Bette Midler

“It’s been ten years since I lived here in LA, and I have to tell you something. From the bottom of my heart, I’ve really missed you assholes. You superficial assholes!” (Bette Midler thanks the audience at the close of her triumphant return to Los Angeles in her hit show Kiss My Brass, March 2004)
