Bette Midler:

Bette Midler: “I went on Johnny Carson. He asked me what I was doing, and I said, I work in a bathhouse. I sing in a bathhouse. And I think people were stunned, and I think gay people were — they sat up and said, Oh, my God.”— (Midler talking about working in a gay bathhouse early in her career to Larry King CNN November 26, 2003)

BetteBack December 12, 1998: Bette And Cher Show Up At The Billboard Music Awards

Indiana Gazette
December 12, 1998

920x920

Bette Midler and Cher were quite something at the Billboard Music Awards the other night.

Midler, blonde, bodacious and eternally outrageous, performed her rowdy “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show,” with the Royal Crown Revue, and Cher looking incredibly beautiful, merely presented, but received a rousing standing ovation.  Cher, who knows what’s up and what’s down in the biz cracked, “you know you’ve been around a long time when they stand up.” Read More

BetteBack April 4, 1997: New York Daily News – That Old Feeling

New York Daily News
Byline: Bob Strauss

That Old Feeling” is uncontrolled, inconsiderate lust. Refreshingly so, in this often funny, sometimes stumbling farce. With Bette Midler blasting away at her larger-than-life best and supporting players who aren’t afraid to look like fools, the movie surfs over credulity gaps and structural bumps on waves of raucous laughter.

Leslie Dixon, who wrote Midler’s similarly amusing “Outrageous Fortune,” came up with the ultimate adult child’s nightmare here. Two divorced parents, individually embarrassing but utterly mortifying when they get together and start fighting, ruin your wedding – not with an argument (though they do that, too), but with a suddenly rekindled passion for each other.

BetteBack April 4, 1997: “That Old Feeling’ is a rose of a film

San Fran Examiner

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN the Divine Miss M and Norma Desmond lies Lilly, the haughty and naughty actress played with exuberance by Bette Midler in “That Old Feeling.”

For the last 14 years, she’s been married to Alan (David Rasche), the marriage counselor who failed to patch up her unraveling 12-year union to Dan (Dennis Farina), a successful novelist, who has since written a book in which an actress is stabbed 27 times.
Dan, too, is remarried, stolen away, according to Lilly, by Rowena (Gail O’Grady), a surgically improved interior decorator. Dan and Lilly’s daughter, Molly (Paula Marshall), is understandably reluctant to invite both of her explosive parents to her wedding to the arrow-straight Republican congressional candidate Keith (Jamie Denton).

BetteBack April 4, 1997: New York Times – That Old Feeling Review

New York Times
April 4, 1997

Psychologists say that children of divorce yearn for the reunion of their parents.

But for Molly, about to be married to a white-haired Republican senator’s all-American son with congressional ambitions of his own, that dream is a nightmare. Her parents — Lilly, a flamboyant actress who just happens to be played by Bette Midler, and Dan (Dennis Farina), a popular writer whose novels feature murdered actresses — loathe each other.

So it is only to please her fiance that Molly (Paula Marshall) agrees to allow Lilly and Dan, who haven’t seen or spoken to each other in 14 years, to attend her wedding. They arrive with their spouses — Rowena (Gail O’Grady), the voluptuous red-haired decorator who seduced Dan in Lilly’s bed, and Alan (David Rasche), the psychobabbling marital counselor who confused business and pleasure when Lilly’s marriage to Dan went sour.

BetteBack Friday, April 4, 1997: Manic Midler Makes `Old Feeling’ Sing

San Fran Chronicle
Friday, April 4, 1997

In “That Old Feeling,” Bette Midler ostensibly plays a movie star named Lilly. But seeing her sashay around in skin-tight dresses, her hair preternaturally blond, another star comes to mind: Mae West .

Midler puts a swagger into lines that could have come out of West’s mouth. “Don’t you know your 20s are for having sex with all the wrong people?” Lilly admonishes her straitlaced daughter, Molly (Paula Marshall), who has just announced her engagement. Read More

New Broadway Season Brings Hollywood Stars to Broadway

Mary-Louise Parker in “Heisenberg” and Diane Lane in “The Cherry Orchard”

mary-louise parkerSome performers who are considered to be A-list stars started on Broadway and then got famous on film or television.  Others have never stepped foot on Broadway until they are already what can be deemed a “box office name.”  In the case of Mary-Louise Parker, who will be returning to Broadway this fall in Heisenberg, she has certainly done her time on stage.  Specifically, Parker often worked with the Manhattan Theatre Club, who are producing Heisenberg in a transfer production from the Off-Broadway run last year; Parker will be reprising her role.  While she may be best known for her starring role on the Showtime television show “Weeds,” Parker has been performing on Broadway since 1990, when she may her Broadway debut in Craig Lucas’ Prelude to a Kiss.  As for another famous star, Diane Lane, the story is somewhat different.  She first appeared on Broadway in 1977 in the ensemble of The Cherry Orchard, and then went on to make a name for herself on the screen.  She also played the part of Iphigenia in Agamemnon in 1977, and wrote additional text for Runaways in 1978.  Nevertheless, Diane Lane is hardly known as a stage actress.  In any case, she will be returning to the major stage this upcoming fall in a production that for her will be going full circle: The Cherry Orchard.  This time, of course, she is playing the lead part of Ranevskaya, Lyubov Andreevna.

On That Old Feeling: “I’ve got bills to pay and a family to feed, after all, and making movies is nothing to touring. I mean, this woman before you has been frazzled, at times…

On That Old Feeling: “I’ve got bills to pay and a family to feed, after all, and making movies is nothing to touring. I mean, this woman before you has been frazzled, at times. But who;s complaining? Work is work, but making this movie with Carl Reiner is like bustin’ free a little. Carl goes for the big laughs.” (Herald-Journal – Apr 8, 1997)
