Bette Midler On working with Lily Tomlin:

Bette Midler On working with Lily Tomlin: “Well, Lily is really a perfectionist. I kept saying, “Lily, this is the Midler School of Mugging, you just have to mug your way through this. Lil, it’s very light, look, I’m singing with a cow! How deadly can it be?” But she just wouldn’t buy it. I couldn’t talk her into it. She really struggled with that material, she was so determined to get her message across. Her heart was in the right place, she wanted to make it better. But sometimes people don’t have any patience for better, they just want to get it done. That picture typifies that, believe it or not.” (1991) Read More

As announced on BroadwayWorld, The Divine Miss D will be returning to Broadway next season in the guise of The Divine Miss M, as Bette Midler struts down the staircase of Harmonia Gardens in a brand-spanking new revival of HELLO, DOLLY!

As is the case when any beloved old musical is plucked for a revival, the guessing game now begins where theatre fans pick their dream casts to fill out the show’s supporting roles. What makes the game a little more interesting this time is that a high-profile star like Bette Midler may attract bigger names into the casting pool. Read More
