Mark Shenton’s week: Bette Midler, Amy Schumer and Uma Thurman show that stars still shine on Broadway

Mark Shenton’s week: Bette Midler, Amy Schumer and Uma Thurman show that stars still shine on Broadway
by Mark Shenton – Dec 4, 2017

Broadway has always been a place where the name on the marquee is a prime seller. It’s what is propelling Bette Midler’s current return to the Broadway boards, for the first time in a musical role rather than as herself in nearly 50 years, to record box office takings in Hello, Dolly!. It opened to the largest pre-performance advance sale in Broadway history, and week after week it has been breaking the Shubert Theatre’s house record for its weekly take. The week ending November 26 brought takings of $2,468,174.59, breaking its own record for the 10th time. Read More

BetteBack August 6, 1995: Bette Of Roses Review

Syracuse Herald Journal
August 6, 1995

Bette Midler‘s first studio album in five years is one of the summer’s pleasant surprises Until now, the Divine Miss M‘s recordings have been somewhat less than divine, the exceptions being her uproarious live albums (“Live at Last” and “Divine Madness“) and the soundtrack from “The Rose

Bette of Roses” is far more polite than those albums, with an adult contemporary sound, but she wisely passes on the overdone ’40s classics that had turned her previous studio releases into predictable camp Here she offers melodic tunes such as “I Know This Town,” a spry Western winner, and the smoldering ballad To Comiort You, in which she adopts a sultry lower register as brushes softly stroke against drums amid teasing, bluesy guitar licks.

“Scenes From A Mall” Released On Blu-Ray

Mister D: This reviewer vilifies this movie, but I always liked. I thought it was one of Midler’s most understated and under appreciated roles:

HighDefDigest
Scenes from a Mall (Blu-ray)
Mill Creek / 1991 / 87 Minutes / Rated R
Street Date: June 13, 2011

The Movie Itself: Our Reviewer‘s Take

This may sound cruel and disgusting to say, but actually engaging in an awkward one time extramarital affair, and then living with the guilt of doing so for the rest of your life may be a more enjoyable experience than spending 87 minutes sitting down to Paul Mazursky‘s ‘Scenes from a Mall.’ Ignore the obvious reference to Ingmar Bergman and ‘Scenes from a Marriage‘ in the title: there’s nothing classy, introspective, or original to be found here. The only things foreign in this film are a purpose, a point, relevance, chemistry, intrigue, humor, wit, insight, drama, sex appeal, believability…get it? I started out the sentence like it was something minor, and then it turned out to be pretty much the entire film? Ah…I kill me. Read More
