Midler on playing characters:

Midler on playing characters: “Those kinds of characters that are larger than life — driven, overbearing — those kinds of characters don’t come along very often. Even in the theater. And since good parts are at a premium, I’m no fool — I want to play as many of them as I possibly can. Every actress who calls herself an actress wants in her heart to play Lady Macbeth. And every musical-comedy person wants to play Mama Rose.” (1993, Hartford Courant) – Bette Midler

Grammys 2018: Can superstar Bette Midler (‘Hello Dolly!’) beat the crossover success of ‘Dear Evan Hansen’?

Grammys 2018: Can superstar Bette Midler (‘Hello Dolly!’) beat the crossover success of ‘Dear Evan Hansen’?

For the first time since 2014 there are only three Grammy nominees for Best Musical Theater Album as opposed to the five that have been included in the last three years. Each of the three nominated cast recordings that made the cut this year came from musical productions — “Come From Away,” “Dear Evan Hansen,” and “Hello Dolly!” — that were seen as highlights of the 2016-17 Broadway season. But the latter two, “Hansen” and “Dolly,” may have the best shot of winning given what this category’s statistics have shown us in recent years. Read More

Bette Midler On Discovering Acting: In Her Sophmore Year In High School:

Bette Midler On Discovering Acting: In Her Sophmore Year In High School: “I discovered I could act for a lot of people, not just 30 people, which I used to do when I was a little girl in fifth grade and did improvised shows with my girlfriend. It gave me a lot of confidence, finding out that I could make people laugh and entertain them.” (The Milwaukee Journal Dec 2, 1979)

Amy Adams vs. Bette Midler Puh-Leeze!

San Fran Chronicle
Ask Mick LaSalle: Amy Adams vs. Bette Midler
Mick LaSalle
Thursday, August 25, 2011

Dear Mick: In answering a reader’s question about a female actress who can sing, dance, and do comedy and drama, how could you ignore Amy Adams? She’s one of the best all-around entertainers we have today.

Mark S., Sausalito

Dear Mark: I was asked about who was the greatest female entertainer of all time. As much as I like her, Amy Adams wasn’t the first person to spring to mind. However, since you’ve changed the subject to living people, what about Bette Midler? She sings beautifully. She’s one of the funniest comic actresses ever. She can be excellent in drama, despite a tendency toward the maudlin. And she can probably dance. Or she can be edited to look as if she can dance. Read More

An Interview with Darlene Love (Thanks Kim)

Melody Maker:
[11 March 2011]
By Christian John Wikane
PopMatters Contributing Editor
She’s a Rebel

A white dude on a motorcycle.

That’s the first visual correlation a whole generation of listeners had with the voice of Darlene Love. Indeed, the picture sleeve accompanying the 45 single of “He’s A Rebel” reflected nothing of the woman singing the song. In fact, even the name of the group on the sleeve—“The Crystals”—was not accurate. While the real Crystals were on tour, producer Phil Spector recorded The Blossoms on the track with Darlene Love singing lead. It would not be the last time. After that song’s chart-topping success in summer 1962, Darlene Love fronted “He’s Sure the Boy I Love” by The Crystals and “Why Do Lovers Break Each Other’s Hearts” by Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans. Her voice was simultaneously ubiquitous and anonymous. Read More
