As a 15-year-old in 1990 watching a preview of The Comedy of Errors from the balcony at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, I was given one of the most valuable lessons in overseeing the art of playing a house.

A few rows in front of me was the play’s director, Ian Judge, and his creative team.

Exactly a week from today Bette Midler will open in Hello, Dolly! on Broadway. There are a few reasons why I think this is pretty much the best thing ever.

First, Bette Midler. As I’ve written in this space multiple times before, I have always loved Bette Midler. While other Jews worship at the altar of Streisand, I’m the one outside the synagogue with signs reading: “Have you ever seen The Rose?” and “Did you not cry at the end of Stella?” Read More

Mister D: And there were many more….

Harrisonburg Daily News Record
Midler Wasn’t First To Make ‘Wings’ Fly
Jerry Osborne
November 15, 1993
