BetteBack April 12, 1975: Bette’s Back Big Time

Emporia Gazette
Bette’s Back

April 12, 1975

THE CRUSH of bridge chairs forms a circle surrounding a large grand piano which is being pounded into a soulful vamp. Thirteen black gospel singers begin bellowing “Gone at Last,” a new Paul Simon song written just for the occasion, and three of the sleasiest-looking girls this side of Eighth Avenue join them in harmony. As the song builds momentum, a red-haired Lilliputian in clashing purple dance tights and brown knee-high boots skitters across the circle segueing the song into a crisp arrangement of “Higher and Higher.” Arms flailing, body gyrating, she hits the top note and the number climaxes.

Mark Shenton: Why is my theatre ticket so expensive? It’s the economics, stupid

Mark Shenton: Why is my theatre ticket so expensive? It’s the economics, stupid

Theatre is necessarily a minority activity: even in London’s five largest theatres – the London Coliseum, London Palladium, Royal Opera House, Theatre Royal Drury Lane and the Dominion – just 2,358, 2,286, 2,256, 2,196 and 2,069 people will be able to watch each performance respectively.

Other commercial West End venues range in size from 432 seats (the Fortune) to 1,500 (the Adelphi), but many important London theatres are much smaller: the Royal Court’s Theatre Upstairs (90 seats), Donmar (251 seats) and Almeida (325 seats) are three of the most high-profile producing venues in London, while the influential and unfunded fringe theatre the Finborough has just 50 seats.

Bette Midler Takes Another Week Off From “Hello Dolly!”

Bette Midler Takes Another Week Off From “Hello Dolly!”

2017-08-26_3-12-17

Goodbye, Dolly, once again.

Starting tomorrow Bette Midler takes her second full week off from “Hello, Dolly!” The first back at the beginning of July.

Midler has also set her closing date for “Dolly!” as January 14, 2018. That should be the end of the run unless they can find someone to come in and take over. That’s unlikely.

The “Hello, Dolly!” cash grab is one of the most onerous in the history of Broadway. Tickets were priced well above $500-$700. Midler is likely taking home $100,000 a week or more. And she hasn’t performed matinees and missed other performances. Read More

Put a Spell On You: ‘Hocus Pocus’ Came Out More Than 20 Years Ago & Yes, the Cast Has Completely Grown Up

It’s still summer but the fall will be here soon enough and with that time of year comes Halloween. What better way to celebrate than by watching a classic Halloween movie, like the one and only Hocus Pocus? Yes, we’re talking about the movie that focuses on the Sanderson Sister witches being resurrected on Halloween by Max Dennsion after he lights a black flame candle, and then it’s up to him, his little sister Dani, his crush Allison and a talking cat the witches cursed named Binx to save all the children of Salem. It plays every single year on every channel basically because it is that legendary. Read More

Stevie Wonder and Olivia Newton-John took ho.me most of the marbles at Saturday night’s Grammy award presentations from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Wonder, the blind rock singer who had his first hit record at the age of 13, was named top male vocalist of 1974. He also won three other awards, including the Best Album of the Year honor for “Fulfillingness’ First Finale.”

Miss Newton-John, who last year was named the best female country vocalist, won the Record of the Year Award for her “I Honestly Love You.” She was also named the best female pop vocalist for 1974. Read More

BetteBack February 6, 1975: Critics Get A Preview Of The Cher Special

There is no question that when Sonny Bono started his “Sonny Comedy Hour” he missed Cher.

The absence of Cher was one of the real reasons for the show failing to make it through the season.

Not only did Sonny’s show lack writing, it lacked comedy.

Next Wednesday night, Cher will try it on her own. This show, a special designed to kick off her new series, came off much better than did Sonny’s solo venture in television.

It was the presence of Cher that made the old “Sonny and Cher Show” a success. The girl can wear clothes like a high fashion model. Read More
