NEW YORK (AP ) — A strenuous comeback bid is being made in “Bette Midler‘s Clams on the Half Shell Revue” by one of the most highly publicized maybe-stars of showbiz.

Flashy, brassy and gimmicky, the production has moved into Broadway’s Minskoff Theater for a run until June 21. Management asked reviews be delayed until after the Thursday performance, but to make deadlines most of the press attended the late starting, 2 1/2 hour fray on Wednesday. Read More

On Romance Movies: “Anyway, I don’t like to do romance. I’m interested in things that are bigger than romance.

On Romance Movies: “Anyway, I don’t like to do romance. I’m interested in things that are bigger than romance. I think romance is what keeps everybody down. There’s a place in everyone’s life for it and I know that people long for it, but I think it’s a cheat, because there are other themes that are more powerful. Women are supposed to do romances, not important, metaphysical {films} that deal with questions of morality and intellect.” She pauses. “They (Disney) didn’t think I should do romances? I can do romances. {But} I think you must have a c ertain kind of stature. I don’t think there’s a single person working today that can pull off {a romance}, not in the old sense. Not when you look at Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant together.” (The Washington Post, 1991) – Bette Midler Read More

BetteBack Sept. 21, 1998: Bathhouse Betty Review

Sept. 21, 1998

It’s not fair that the Diva Divine makes albums only as vacations from movies and motherhood, for her genius is as a singer-entertainer. Midler‘s vocal voltage and pristine song salesmanship are on display here in tunes by Leonard Cohen, Chuckii Booker, Carole King, Ben Folds–lots of fine folk. Her voice can ache with hard-won wisdom (on the first single, My One True Friend) or smile with the sweet clarity of her Honolulu youth (Gus Kahn‘s 1925 Ukulele Lady). Songs like Laughing Matters, I’m Beautiful and I’m Hip give the album the sassy intimacy of a pep talk from an old friend. But Midler is not aging; those pipes are still brass-bold and silk-smooth. At 52, Bette’s still best. Read More

Bette Midler On Her Song Choices:
