Rejoice! Bette Midler is back onstage in New York, opening this week in the title role of the Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!

Depending on your personal tastes, you may know Midler best from her 14 studio albums, her countless tours, or her colorful movie roles, from 1979’s The Rose (for which she won the first of her three Golden Globes) to this year’s Freak Show. Midler first garnered recognition worldwide for her 1972 album The Divine Miss M, which won her a Grammy for Best New Artist, and she has had more soundtrack credits than acting roles over the years. But her star trajectory can be traced back to an early string of off-off-Broadway productions after she moved to New York from her native Hawaii in 1965. Just a year after performing in roles that were many miles from the Great White Way (figuratively, anyway), Midler landed the role of a lifetime as Tzeitel in the 1967 Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof, and the rest is history.

Are Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler sisters? — C.L , Port Orange, Fla.

No. Streisand has one half-sister, Rosalind Kind, and one brother, Sheldon Streisand. And, in answer to a question from D.A. in Shreveport, La., Streisand’s real given name is Barbara. She changed the spelling.

BetteBack Review February 27, 1991: Even Midler, who is usually pure energy, is a real snooze in this film

Walla Walla Union Bulletin
February 27, 1991

Woody Allen is a talented person. He is a fantastic writer, a wonderful director and he can even act.

But he isn’t a great actor. He really only plays one character well — Woody Allen.

In Scenes From a Mall, Allen attempts to branch out. He plays Nick Fifer, a sushi-eating, Saab-driving, espresso-drinking Southern California lawyer who hates mimes.

Woody Allen, however, isn’t a California guy. He’s a New York person and it shows. ‘The only believable part of his character was the mimehating. Read More

Midler’s Almost-Forgotten Debut Album Still Remains A Classic Of The ’70s Nostalgia/Camp Boom

The A.V. Club
With The Divine Miss M, Bette Midler went from bathhouses to The Tonight Show
Midler’s almost-forgotten debut album is a classic of the ’70s nostalgia/camp boom.

Permanent Records is an ongoing closer look at the records that matter most.

On May 21, 1992, NBC aired the penultimate episode of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, which included one of the most memorable images in the show’s history: Bette Midler, softly speak-singing the Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer favorite “One For My Baby (And One More For The Road),” while the camera catches an enraptured Carson watching from his desk. Carson and Midler had history. She was a frequent guest over the previous 20 years, since first appearing on the New York City incarnation of the Carson Tonight Show in the early ’70s. She was even briefly the opener for Carson’s Las Vegas stand-up act. That night in 1992, they looked like old friends and even older showbiz pros—representatives of a fading era. Read More
