Celebrating singer & actress Bette Midler – Some Leftover Birthday Celebration

Egypt Today
Celebrating singer & actress Bette Midler
By: Nizar Ahmed Fri, Dec. 1, 2017

CAIRO – 1 December 2017: December 1 is the birthday of the enchanting singer and actress Bette Midler, whose Grammy-award winning music has sold nearly 30 million copies worldwide, while her film roles have earned her Oscar nominations.

Born in Hawaii on 1945, Midler grew up poor alongside three other siblings, and found joy in the nature around her. Midler studied drama at the University of Hawaii, and got her very first start in movies as an extra on 1965’s “Hawaii”. Soon after, she moved to New York City to get her start in show business, with her earliest stints being a singer at a nightclub. She also had a role on Broadway’s popular “Fiddler on the Roof”.

Bette Midler Accepting Her Outer Critics Circle Award: “I want to give a shout out to Jerry Zaks, our director, our choreographer, Warren Carlyle, who is absolutely brilliant.

Bette Midler Accepting Her Outer Critics Circle Award: “I want to give a shout out to Jerry Zaks, our director, our choreographer, Warren Carlyle, who is absolutely brilliant. He loves everything I do. He thinks everything I do is genius. ‘Keep it in! Keep it in!’ It’s a very florid performance. I want to thank all the sensational designers involved–even Santo Loquasto, who trussed me up like a Christmas goose. I want to thank Natasha Katz for making me look half my age and Scott Lehrer for his beautiful sound design and, of course, our producer, the mastermind, Scott Rudin, who eventually got me to say yes after many, many, many, many, many months of saying ‘Noooooooo.’” She dropped to a lower register. “‘Noooooooo, thank you.’” (Playbill, MAY 27, 2017) Read More

Well, Hello, Dollys!

New York Times
Well, Hello, Dollys!
By MARCH 22, 2017

Carol Channing originated the musical role of Dolly Levi and was considered irreplaceable.  Now Bette Midler steps into a long line of her successors.

Carol Channing, who created the title role in the 1964 smash hit musical “Hello, Dolly!,” has been called many things: “a walking alarm clock,” “a moon-mad hillbilly,” “an Al Hirschfeld caricature in the flesh,” with “a vocal range from deep foghorn to squeaky hinge.” Read More

Bette Midler Is Terrific In “Hello Dolly!”

Page Six
Hello, Dolly!’ slammed as ‘breath of stale air’ in previews

Bette Midler is terrific in “Hello, Dolly!” but some Broadway regulars are underwhelmed.

“It is not a great show — one wonderful number, the rest sort of a breath of stale air,” one theatergoer said after a preview.

As for David Hyde Pierce: “Fabulous, but he needs to work on his New Yawk accent. It was all over the place!” said another.

Still, it will be huge hit. The standing ovation for Midler’s first entrance went on so long, producer Scott Rudin and director Jerry Zaks were “plotzing and high-fiving each other,” according to one witness. Read More

Mark Twain said every man was entitled to his favorite brand of insanity and mine is picking the year’s Bests. The New Star of “73 is Bette Midler at the Palace; Oscar-winner Liza Minelli, a sellout coming into the Winter Garden in January, has been such a spectacular success on tour that she gets a 1974 award in advance.

14 of the Wildest Golden Globe Moments Ever: Bette Midler is the original NSFW presenter (1980)

People
14 of the Wildest Golden Globe Moments Ever
BY ALEX HEIGL
POSTED ON JANUARY 4, 2017

The Golden Globes has long held a reputation as the loosey-goosey younger sibling of the Academy Awards. Maybe it’s because it’s the start of awards show season, and stars aren’t yet tired of the red carpet grind. Or maybe it’s just become a self-fulfilling prophecy of the show that celebrities are going to get a little silly, but for whatever reason, the Globes annually seem to give us more double-take moments than most Hollywood spectacles. Let’s look at some of our favorites. Read More

25 Things You Never Knew About the Golden Globes
Posted January 3, 2017 by Moviefone Staff

For a night known as Hollywood’s most notorious open-bar gala, the Golden Globes ceremony remains (somewhat) shrouded in mystery.

Most viewers probably don’t even know who presents it (the Hollywood Foreign Press Association), how many voting members it has (only about 90), or what qualifies them to pass judgment on movies and television. Yet movie fans and awards mavens continue to take the Golden Globes seriously as a precursor to the Academy Awards, since some of the Globe honorees will indeed go on to win Oscars. Read More
