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

BetteBack March 21, 1975: Is Bette Midler Filming A TV Series?

Charleston Gazette

Q. — I was told that Bette Midler is going to appear on TV as a regular on a show without singing. Is this possible? — P.B., Bridgeport, Conn.

A. It’s possible, but it’s not about to happen. Bette Midler has not been signed to star in a straight non-musical TV series. However.she is a capable actress and would probably do well playing an offbeat character in a TV series. Bette’s current plans do not involve TV … she is readying Broadway revue in which she will star. Read More

For the moment, the pre-holiday season looks swell, especially with Uma Thurman (in Beau Willimon’s The Parisian Woman) and Amy Schumer (in Steve Martin’s Meteor Shower) joining Bette Midler and Bruce Springsteen on the gold-paved Street where we live. So good, in fact, that this week we’re going to give you twoTop 5 charts, one for musicals and one for non-musicals. The mere fact that there are enough plays on Broadway at the moment to require their own visual aid is remarkable all by itself. Read More
