Pitch Perfect 3 Star Anna Kendrick on the Acting Bug, Breaking Down in Front of Bette Midler and Why the World Loves the Bellas
By AMY SPENCER
NOVEMBER 10, 2017

Only 12 when she was nominated for a Tony award for her role in Broadway’s High Society, Anna Kendrick, now 32, has worked her way onto the big screen in nearly every way. The Maine native broke through in the YA fantasy Twilight (2008) and co-starred alongside George Clooney in the drama Up in the Air (2009), for which she was nominated for an Oscar. But she reigned as a fan favorite in Pitch Perfect (2012) as Beca, an awkward college student with an angelic voice who joins an oddball mix of women in their a cappella singing group, the Bellas. Kendrick and her crooning crew will return in Pitch Perfect 3 (December 22), facing off against younger, hipper competition on their (possibly) farewell tour. Read More

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

Joy Behar Offered Chance To Star In Touring Version Of “Hello, Dolly!
by Brandon Voss
August 5, 2017

But don’t Bette on it.

Hello, Joy?

While there’s still no official word on who will replace Tony winner Bette Midler when she departs Broadway’s hit revival of Hello, Dolly! in January, we can probably rule out one daytime diva.

The View co-host Joy Behar revealed at the top of Friday’s show that she had recently been approached to headline the upcoming tour of Hello, Dolly! as iconic matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi. Read More

Mark Shenton: Broadway’s reliance on star power is proving its undoing

The Stage
Mark Shenton: Broadway’s reliance on star power is proving its undoing
by Mark Shenton – Aug 2, 2017

2017-04-16_10-35-44

The brutal economics of Broadway’s dependence on star casting has been underlined by two current shows. First, Hello, Dolly!, which is doing record business at the Shubert Theatre (and setting record prices, too) thanks to star Bette Midler, in her first return to a Broadway musical in 50 years. But when Midler recently took a holiday, revenues fell precipitously – from close to $3 million a week to just $722,500. Read More

    Kenny Ortega does not want a “Hocus Pocus” remake — because he has a better idea

    It’s the middle of summer, which means it’s almost October, which means it’s almost Halloween, which means it’s the perfect time to start talking about the fact that we still don’t have a sequel to Hocus Pocus, Disney’s 1993 classic about the three mischievous Sanderson Sisters.

    Over the last almost 25 years, the movie has achieved way more than just a cult status; it’s got an entire dedicated fandom who love (but as a child, feared) Winnie, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson. It might be the reason you have a black cat named Binx, or joke about a virgin lighting the Black Flame Candle. Fans — and the stars — of the film have been nothing but vocal about their love and need for more of these sistaaaahs over the years. Read More

    Does Bette Midler’s career appear to be going downhill?

    YES. Bette Midler has been getting poor management. Events like that bad reception at Johnny Carson’s Friar’s Roast need never have happened.

    Oh, Donna! ‘Dolly’s Double Divas Drive 8-Show Week To $2.3M: Broadway Box Office

    Oh, Donna! ‘Dolly’s Double Divas Drive 8-Show Week To $2.3M: Broadway Box Office

    Donna Murphy began her turn as the eighth Dolly Levi last week, propelling the Bette Midler-led revival of Hello, Dolly! into the box-office stratosphere occupied almost exclusively by Hamilton. Murphy’s Tuesday night debut gave the musical its first 8-performance week since previews began March 15, with sales at the Shubert Organization’s flagship theater flirting with the $3 million mark in ticket sales. Only Hamilton did better, and not by much ($3 million in sales at the Nederlander Organization’s Richard Rodgers), with Disney’s The Lion King taking third place ($2.1 million, at the Nederlanders’ Minskoff). Wicked, at the Nederlanders’ Gershwin, sold $1.96 million in tickets.
