NEW YORK (AP ) — A strenuous comeback bid is being made in “Bette Midler‘s Clams on the Half Shell Revue” by one of the most highly publicized maybe-stars of showbiz.

Flashy, brassy and gimmicky, the production has moved into Broadway’s Minskoff Theater for a run until June 21. Management asked reviews be delayed until after the Thursday performance, but to make deadlines most of the press attended the late starting, 2 1/2 hour fray on Wednesday. Read More

BetteBack June 30, 1975: People Magazine Interview Regarding “Clams”

People Magazine
Bette Midler Returns In Tacky Triumph
June 30, 1975
By Patricia Burstein

In a blue-and-white smock with red sandals coordinating her Bicentennial look, the star shimmied along New York’s 42nd Street on a recent afternoon. Some of the drifters and drunks recognized and swooped down on her, and she fluttered her fingers in self-­defense. She slunk past a peep show window, then nipped into an alley. A second later her bright red head popped out – the hand clutching the throat is her own, in the classic strangulation bit of vaudeville. “I wouldn’t say I invented tack,” Bette Midler observed, nasally, “but I definitely brought it to its present high popularity.” Though meant as a self-effacing remark, it is true. Her virtual one-woman Broadway show this season has been the biggest hit by a solo artist since she herself last brightened the Great White Way in 1973. Read More

Bette Midler On No Great Parts For Women Over 40: I don’t feel that way. I feel like I can go on forever.

Bette Midler On No Great Parts For Women Over 40: I don’t feel that way. I feel like I can go on forever. People always want to see a funny little old lady, don’t they? And if they don’t, I’ll make them.I still have the Sophie Tucker story to go yet. I don’t have that fear. I also know that that fear is something that they’re all going through. I wonder if they’re just catching it from each other, though. I mean, it’s obvious that Cher can go on forever too if she wants. Her career is longer than God so far. (1991) Read More

(On Mark Rydell calling her obsessive and compulsive about making things better) “He called me obsessive and compulsive? I’m not obsessive or compulsive…

(On Mark Rydell calling her obsessive and compulsive about making things better) “He called me obsessive and compulsive? I’m not obsessive or compulsive. Well, I do like to make things better. I don’t like garbage. And there’s so much junk. And all the standards keep getting lower and lower. Finally people won’t recognize anything beautiful when they see it, because they won’t even know what it is.” (1991, Movieline)
