Bette Midler just tossed so much shade at Kevin Spacey it almost caused an eclipse
By Bil Browning · Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Comedy goddess and singer extraordinaire Bette Midler just proved why she is a gay icon with one tweet. Midler shaded disgraced actor Kevin Spacey with one photo and 9 words.

Now that Spacey has come out after multiple allegations of sexual harassment and assault, he’s lost his role in the Netflix hit “House of Cards,” his agent and publicist have dropped him like a hot rock, and his role in the soon to be released movie All The Money In The World will be reshot with Christopher Plummer replacing Spacey.

But don’t Bette on it.

Hello, Joy?

While there’s still no official word on who will replace Tony winner Bette Midler when she departs Broadway’s hit revival of Hello, Dolly! in January, we can probably rule out one daytime diva.

The View co-host Joy Behar revealed at the top of Friday’s show that she had recently been approached to headline the upcoming tour of Hello, Dolly! as iconic matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi. Read More

Tony Winners Reap in Profits as Summer Peaks

In the week ending July 30, 2017, the top earning show in terms of percentage reached of its gross potential was Kinky Boots, which was the 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Musical.  Spurred on by the recent addition of pop star Brendon Urie to the cast, Kinky Boots is experiencing a renaissance of its top box office days, which peaked in the holiday season at the end of 2013, as well as late summer 2013 following the show’s Tony success.  This past week, the weekly gross for Kinky Boots was $1,584,103, which is the highest weekly gross since Urie entered the cast.  This is an increase of $131,512 from the week before, and the grosses have been steadily increasing for the past 10 weeks.  Prior to that, the week ending May 28, 2017 had a weekly gross of just $796,424, after which a steep jump of $318,869 led the show on its current upward trend.  In terms of gross potential, Kinky Boots had the highest gross this past week at 125.99% of its gross potential.

Fame and money was partly what drove me to leave Hawaii for New York to become a singer when I was 19.

Fame and money was partly what drove me to leave Hawaii for New York to become a singer when I was 19. When you are poor – and we were really poor – it’s human nature to want to better yourself. – Bette Midler

Why You Can’t Find Any Hello Dolly Footage Online

Why You Can’t Find Any Hello Dolly Footage Online

Our brief “Ask Billy” question comes from Justin: “Thanks for the video of Angels in America from London. But, here’s one better—Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly! Nobody has any footage. If anyone can get it, you can.”

I can, and do. Many people have attempted to film clips of Bette Midler in “Dolly.” Most have had their phones confiscated. And those who posted footage online found it quickly removed due to the vehemence of pit bull producer Scott Rudin. There has been an embargo on any clips of Bette in the role—the rationale being, if you wanna see her, spend $600 and buy a ticket. But, the wait is over. There are a couple of tantalizing videos on BillyMasters.com . Well, the word “video” might be a misnomer. Yes, there are fleeting images of Midler, but most of the time she’s onstage, the spotlight is so bright it almost completely washes her out. Still, you can hear her perfectly and see glimpses of a ghostly Divine Miss M on our website. Read More

Broadway Box Office Tips Up For Blockbusters As Star-Based Shows Slip

Broadway Box Office Tips Up For Blockbusters As Star-Based Shows Slip

Broadway receipts were up slightly last week even as an old lesson held true: A hit that doesn’t hitch its wagon to a star is a better long-term bet than a star-driven vehicle. That was certainly the case for a couple of newsworthy shows, notably Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, which continued to slip following the departure of the musical’s Pierre, Josh Groban.

Bette Midler on her Broadway debut in one-woman show “I’ll Eat You Last”

[Bette Midler on her Broadway debut in one-woman show “I’ll Eat You Last”] I’d never done a straight play before, never, and it was very hard work – really, really hard work. It was dense, really wordy, and I was determined to learn every word of it – not just skip over bits and pieces. It took me a long time to actually know what the play was about – that it was a long aria with slow-moving parts, and parts with laughs and tears, and that my job was to switch gears pretty radically and seamlessly in ways that I had never done before. And this wasn’t like just one day of shooting for a movie – you had to stay healthy, your brain had to stay sharp, and you needed enough wind so when a sentence went on like a paragraph, I could still breathe. There were moments I had to eat candy, and I would have a mouth full of saliva, but no time to swallow it – so I had to learn to perform through moments like that – Bette Midler Read More

Bette Midler on “Misery”

[Bette Midler on “Misery”] I turned that down because I didn’t want to saw off someone’s foot, even though the role won an Oscar [for Kathy Bates]. It was stupid to say no to those pictures. And while I was unsure about doing this play [on Broadway as Sue Mengers], I felt it was time for me to say yes. – Bette Midler
