American actor, screenwriter, playwright and female impersonator, Charles Busch on his play “Tales Of The Allergist’s Wife being made into a movie with Bette Midler:

Coming up for Busch are a full scale revival of one of his works — which must remain nameless at the moment, as it’s not been formally announced yet — at the Cherry Lane in 2020, and it looks like the film version of his true classic, ‘Tale of the Allergist’s Wife,” is finally a real go, starring Bette Midler and Sharon Stone.

Kennedy Center Honors: Our top 50 recommendations who need to be chosen include Dick Van Dyke, Liza Minnelli, Jessica Lange, Bette Midler

Mister D: Ok, I admit that I’m prejudiced, but this list could be whittled down in seconds for me. My standards are high, well in some things, and some of these people don’t really belong on this list.

Electric Factory Owner Creates 11 Million Dollar Scholarships In Honor Of 11 Performers

The Temple News
Electric Factory owner is giving back to Temple to ‘honor’ his beginnings
by Patrick Bilow 06 February 2018

Before opening the Electric Factory in 1968 and becoming good friends with musician Bruce Springsteen and actor Billy Crystal, Larry Magid was a “dyed-in-the-wool, rock ‘n’ roll rebel” who booked small bands for fraternity parties at Temple and the University of Pennsylvania.

“I love music,” said Magid, a 2012 honorary alumnus. “It was on all the time in my house growing up, on the radio, on the TV, but this was where my career in music really began. … I started asking myself, ‘How do I give back to where I came from?’” Read More

7 Predictions for the Theater in 2018

Theatermania
7 Predictions for the Theater in 2018
Editorial Staff • Broadway • Jan 1, 2018

You can’t see the future, but if you stop and listen, you can hear which way the wind is blowing. With that in mind, here are seven predictions from TheaterMania about the trends and ideas that will shape the theater in the coming year:

1. More A-List Musicians Will Play Broadway
Bruce Springsteen is changing the game at the Walter Kerr Theatre. While numerous high-profile musicians have created “theatri-concerts” for the Broadway stage — a list that ranges from the likes of Bette Midler to Duran Duran — Springsteen’s solo show, complete with dark, brooding monologues about his life and new acoustic takes on his extensive song catalogue, plays more like Billy Crystal’s introspective 700 Sundays than a career retrospective highlighting his greatest hits.

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

It Takes A Horace! Who Should Star In HELLO, DOLLY! Opposite Bette Midler?

Broadway World
It Takes A Horace! Who Should Star In HELLO, DOLLY! Opposite Bette Midler?
January 19, 2016

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
