BetteBack March 3, 1975: Is Bette Midler going to appear on TV as a regular on a show without singing?

News Journal Mansfield
March 3, 1975

Bette Midler

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 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 a Broadway revue in which she will star. Read More

Best Shout-Out to the Playwright Who Got You a Tony

Accepting her award for “The Little Foxes,” Cynthia Nixon struck one of the night’s more political notes in an otherwise apolitical night of speechmaking.

“It is a privilege to appear in Lillian Hellman’s eerily prescient play, at this specific moment in history,” she said. “Eighty years ago, she wrote, ‘There are people who eat the earth and eat all the people on it, and other people who just stand around and watch them do it.’ My love, my gratitude and my undying respect go out to all the people in 2017 who are refusing to just stand and watch them do it.” Read More

Bette Midler sends warning to ‘Spamilton’ cast

Bette Midler sends warning to ‘Spamilton’ cast

Bette Midler surprised the cast of “Spamilton” after she learned that the revamped satirical musical also spoofs her and her hit, “Hello, Dolly!” Spies said the cast of the parody — which has moved close to the real “Hamilton” and updated its shtick to also make fun of more Broadway neighbors — received a surprise note from Midler last week with a magnum of Champagne.

Break a leg tonight on your first preview,” Midler wrote before warning: “Go easy on me, or I’ll break your legs myself! Xx, Bette.” Read More
