Was Bette Midler Nervous About Making Her First Film, The Rose?:

Was Bette Midler Nervous About Making Her First Film, The Rose?: “Oh this isn’t my first film. I’ve never told anybody this. I never thought I’d have any reason to. But once I was an extra. I was an extra in The Detective with Frank Sinatra. And then I was an extra in…are you ready?…Goodbye Columbus. Thirty two fifty a day to and from New Rochelle to watch Ali McGraw snap at the straps of her bathing suit. Snap those straps Ali. Snap those things. (Plain Dealer, September 17, 1978)

‘Hello, Dolly!’: Bette Midler Proves She’s the New Queen of Broadway (Rolling Stone)

‘Hello, Dolly!’: Bette Midler Proves She’s the New Queen of Broadway

It’s coronation time: Bette Midler is the new queen of Broadway. It really is a cultural moment when Miss M steps up top the plate to make her starring debut in a Broadway musical and knocks it out of the park. Hello, Dolly! is a song-and-dance warhorse, over half a century old, that Midler twists a little, stirs a little, shapes a little, molds a little and –voila! – it’s a musical comedy dream for a new generation to discover.

Bette Midler On Being Compared To Barbra Streisand:

Bette Midler On Being Compared To Barbra Streisand: “First of all, it makes me feel bad for her. I know I’d feel badly if I were Barbra, because everyone likes to think that they’re unique. I also know that no one feels like they’re tugging at someone else’s coattails, pushing against them on a ladder. It can be very irritating.” (Morning Star, August 23, 1977)

NEW YORK — Outside Broadway’s Shubert Theatre on Wednesday, guys were taking selfies while swathed in bright-red feather boas. Inside, film director Quentin Tarantino stood in line at the men’s room. High-rollers took their third-row seats, carrying overpriced lattes. What could possibly be uniting such diverse parties?

The combination of star and show has created a good, old-fashioned box-office-busting phenomenon. I saw the excitement for myself, not to mention the boa guys, at a preview performance Wednesday before the Thursday opening. Read More

Review Bette Midler and ‘Hello, Dolly!’: A match that makes for Broadway

Los Angeles Times
Review Bette Midler and ‘Hello, Dolly!’: A match that makes for Broadway heaven
By Charles McNulty
April 20, 2017

Midler and David Hyde Pierce: Two pros at the top of their game.

Rarely has an exclamation point in a title been earned as thoroughly as the one in the new Broadway revival of “Hello, Dolly!” starring Bette Midler.

The show, which opened at the Sam S. Shubert Theatre on Thursday, offers the special satisfaction of a favorite star finally performing the role she was destined to play. But this is so much more than a Divine Miss M vehicle. Read More

Review: ‘Hello, Dolly!’ Is Bright, Brassy and All Bette (New York Times)

Review: ‘Hello, Dolly!’ Is Bright, Brassy and All Bette

The pinnacle of fine dining in New York these days can’t be found in a Michelin-starred restaurant, though it will probably cost you just as much. No, you’ll have to get yourself and your wide-open wallet to the Shubert Theater, where the savory spectacle of Bette Midler eating turns out to be the culinary event of the year.

Ms. Midler — who opened in the title role of “Hello, Bette!,” I mean “Hello, Dolly!,” on Thursday night — not only knows how to make a meal out of a juicy part; she knows how to make a meal out of a meal. In the second act of this exceedingly bright and brassy revival, Ms. Midler can be found sitting alone at a table, slowly and deliberately polishing off the remnants of an expensive dinner, from a turkey bone dipped in gravy to a multitude of dumplings, while the rest of the cast freezes in open-mouthed amazement.
