Bette Midler On Her Singing:

Bette Midler On Her Singing: “I sing from the top of my throat, my head, my diaphram, and even my butt. I’ve done vocal exercises for years, even though I have no upper register to speak of.” (Richmond Times Dispatch, January 20, 1978)

She Say: Bette Midler and Hello Dolly! Is Divine

She Say: Bette Midler and Hello Dolly! Is Divine

When I was 16, I was at the iconic concert where the Divine Miss M lit up a joint on New Years Eve, because it had just become decriminalization. I was witnessing history then and I did so last night as Bette Midler, gave a 125 percent to an audience who adores her. Hello, Dolly! is back on Broadway and so is The Divine Miss M. Lovingly directed by Jerry Zaks, at the Shubert Theatre, musical theatre fans have been given a sherbet gilded Christmas card, as a love letter to Broadway past. Read More

Review: ‘Hello, Dolly!’ at the Shubert Theatre

DC Metro
Review: ‘Hello, Dolly!’ at the Shubert Theatre
by Richard Seff on April 24, 2017

I’m going to tell you a short story before I get to my review of Hello, Dolly! which is now playing at the Shubert Theatre on Broadway. I do so to give what’s now called “transparency” to my words in praise of it. In the last days of the so-called Golden Age of musicals (circa 1962) I was a young theatrical agent specializing in the field of musical theatre, and I represented a handful of promising young composer/lyricists.

‘Hello, Dolly!’: Bette Midler Proves She’s the New Queen of Broadway (Rolling Stone)

Rolling Stone
‘Hello, Dolly!’: Bette Midler Proves She’s the New Queen of Broadway

It’s coronation time: Bette Midler is the new queen of Broadway. It really is a cultural moment when Miss M steps up top the plate to make her starring debut in a Broadway musical and knocks it out of the park. Hello, Dolly! is a song-and-dance warhorse, over half a century old, that Midler twists a little, stirs a little, shapes a little, molds a little and –voila! – it’s a musical comedy dream for a new generation to discover.

Liz Smith: We came, we looked; she conquered. Bette Midler, Broadway belongs to you

Tribune
Bette Midler
— back where belongs, on Broadway in ‘Hello, Dolly!

2017-04-22_4-07-01

“TALENT hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see.” Arthur SchopenhauerI HAPPEN to think that my friend Bette Midler is a true national treasure. And in New York she is even more. She started a “green revolution” with her New York Restoration Project.

So, it is no wonder that she, in Jerry Herman’s classic “Hello, Dolly!” is this season’s “Hamilton” — the can’t-get-a-ticket phenomenon of the year. They are going to have to establish a whole new category for Bette! I say, let’s run Miss Midler for president in 2020.

THERE ARE opening nights, great, grand opening nights, and then there are supernova events, such as what happened at the Shubert Theatre last Thursday evening.

For weeks, months, really, the very thought of Midler — who has never starred in a Broadway musical — going through her paces as Dolly Gallagher Levi, has consumed the minds and hearts of Bette’s fans and Broadway mavens. Read More

Bette Midler On The Perception Of What The Public Has Of Her:

Bette Midler On The Perception Of What The Public Has Of Her: “The public must be tired of reading that I’m terrified of this, terrified of that. I can see it now…I’m old and someone asks of someone else what my career had been like, and the answer is: ‘It was one long terror.’” (Morning Star, August 23, 1977)

Bette Midler On Gays Being The Victims Of Peace Of Our Times: “When we have no war, no plagues, no real concerns to take up our time, we manufacture concerns, and the Gay issue has become it.

Bette Midler and ‘Hello, Dolly!’ are a dazzling match: theater review

Bette Midler and ‘Hello, Dolly!’ are a dazzling match: theater review
BY JOE DZIEMIANOWICZ

Hello, blockbuster!

They don’t make ’em like they used to — and that goes double for Broadway’s dazzling revival of “Hello, Dolly!” thanks to the show itself and its above-the-title supernova, Bette Midler.

Frankly, there ought to be another exclamation point.

If you don’t know the classic by composer-lyricist Jerry Herman and writer Michael Stewart, it only takes a moment to get you up to speed. Read More

Bette Midler On Her Hawaiian Childhood:

Bette Midler On Her Hawaiian Childhood: “It hasn’t changed since the 50’s. They’re entrenched in the 50’s. It’s a moral, uptight, kind of thing, but I think that’s a good foundation to have. If you want to branch out later…okay.” (Morning Star, July 3, 1977)\
