We don’t care about our children at all. We let them run around with no discipline. We let them park their carcasses in front of the television. We don’t teach them to read. Well that’s not what I want for my child.

We don’t care about our children at all. We let them run around with no discipline. We let them park their carcasses in front of the television. We don’t teach them to read. Well that’s not what I want for my child. I want her to have a real childhood, with real cookies in the oven, corny as that may sound I want her to love nature and breathe fresh air. I don’t want her to see hundreds of thousands of people die on her television set before she’s 20. AND she doesn’t wear tart clothes. I have such a resentment of mothers dressing up their children to look like little versions of themselves. It’s totally insane. Can’t they wait for a while before putting the spandex and the lycra on these kids. These aren’ children. They’re little grown-ups. Don’t these parents LIKE kids? (1991) – Bette Midler Read More

Fame and money was partly what drove me to leave Hawaii for New York to become a singer when I was 19.

Fame and money was partly what drove me to leave Hawaii for New York to become a singer when I was 19. When you are poor – and we were really poor – it’s human nature to want to better yourself. – Bette Midler

    As an actor you’re supposed to take jobs that will challenge you or force fans to see you in a different light.

    As an actor you’re supposed to take jobs that will challenge you or force fans to see you in a different light. By the ’90s, I wasn’t really an actor anymore. I was someone who went on the road with these gigantic concerts. I got so far away from what they told you in acting class: Do something different. Producers kept offering me the “Sister Act” movie, but I said, “My fans don’t want to see me in a wimple.” I literally said, “My fans don’t want to see me in a wimple.”. – Bette Midler Read More

    This summer, hundreds of us will go to concerts, theatrical performances and sporting events. It will probably cost you more than you expected, but what can a fan do?

    If you recently purchased a ticket and paid hundreds of dollars over the face value of that ticket, chances are you were ripped off.

    Eddie Knight loves directing musicals. That includes a summer program for kids at the Mac-Haydn Theatre in Chatham.

    “I’ve been here at the workshop as a teacher for five years,” he noted. Read More

    It’s a long way from Sun Prairie to New York City, but one Sun Prairie High School alumnus has made it to Broadway.

    Calling from New York last week, Hartung recounted his Broadway debut as a member of the ensemble in the revival of “Hello, Dolly!” and an understudy for the role of Barnaby Tucker.

    When The Star last checked in with Hartung, he was getting ready to play the part of a Lost Boy in Peter Pan Live, which aired in 2014. Hartung began his training at the Monona Academy of Dance at age 3 and became involved with Sun Prairie Civic Theatre in second grade. Read More

    I’m an open-space person. I’m not a believer in sprawl. I don’t particularly care for postmodern architecture.

    “I’m an open-space person. I’m not a believer in sprawl. I don’t particularly care for postmodern architecture. I believe in solid fare and building fair. I’m green to the core. This group I run in New York bought 60 community gardens and helped another group to buy 55 in congested neighbourhoods. I’m doing a similar thing in Hawaii, but it’s harder there, the tracts are so big and there are these things about road zoning, dams, reservoirs…” – Bette Midler
