Albuquerque Journal

STEPHEN Sondheim, Broadway.s musical comedy wunderkind “Follies,” “A Little Night Music“) wrote the script, alony with Tonv Perkins. Recently, an album in tribute to Sondheim.s accomplishments was released. The cover consisted of the names of his musicals spelled out in Scrabble tiles.

HERE, then, was your first clue to the mystery of the mystery movie that is “The Last of Sheila” There are two others in this review  one present once, one repeated several times. They will be missed just like the a b i e n c e ,(myself inc,uded) fails to recognize “The Last of Sheila clues provided by the script. That’s the enormous genius of this movie; unlike “Sleuth” there are no gimmicks. Each clue is repeated and repeated. Read More

Bette Midler on Sue Mengers who thought of her clients as family:

Bette Midler on Sue Mengers who thought of her clients as family: “I think Sue’s heart was broken in a way after the pile-on—the fact that a lot of people she thought would be loyal to her were not loyal. She was unprepared for it. When you observe it from a distance, you can say, ‘Oh, that poor schmuck.’ But until it happens to you, you really don’t know what it feels like.” (Vanity Fair, 2013)

BetteBack March, 26, 1973: Self-Styled Bette In ‘Divine’ Impact

Dallas Morning News
March, 26, 1973

2016-06-06_13-06-20


The whole tone of Bette Midler‘s weekend performance at the Music Hall was set right at the beginning. She entered onstage brandishing a whip.

Throughout the lengthy two and one-half house performance her take-charge attitude never wavered. The “divine Miss M,” the self-appointed legend in her own time, never let go. Compared to her singing, that of Barbra Streisand is subdued and even timid. Compared to her comedy, that of Phyllis Diller is downright genteel. If you compare her “presence” with that of Bette Davis, Miss Davis seems like a shrinking violet. Read More

EXCLUSIVE: Morgan Spurlock’s Warrior Poets has acquired rights to Brian Kellow’s bestselling biography Can I Go Now: The Life of Sue Mengers, Hollywood’s Superagent. Spurlock will direct a feature on Mengers, writing a script and producing with Warrior Poets COO Jeremy Chilnick, with Richard Arlook also producing.

In her heyday, Mengers crashed the boys club that was Hollywood agenting, brandishing an outsized personality to go with her client list. In stints at MCA, ICM and WMA, she repped a list of clients that at one time or other included Barbra Streisand, Candice Bergen, Peter Bogdanovich, Michael Caine, Dyan Cannon, Cher, Joan Collins, Brian De Palma, Faye Dunaway, Bob Fosse, Gene Hackman, Sidney Lumet, Ali McGraw, Steve McQueen, Mike Nichols, Nick Nolte, Tatum O’Neal, Ryan O’Neal, Anthony Perkins, Burt Reynolds, Cybill Shepherd, Gore Vidal, Richard Benjamin, Paula Prentiss, and Tuesday Weld. She died at age 81 in 2011, and her life was previously turned into a stage play by John Logan, with Bette Midler playing the feisty dealmaker. Read More

Bette Midler to play Mama Rose in CBS’ adaptation of ‘Gypsy
July 21, 1993
By Gail Shister

112805215

LOS ANGELES – Big. Bombastic. Bright. Bette. Taking her place among such legends as Ethel Merman and Rosalind Russell, Bette Midler says she jumped at the chance to star as immortal stage mother Mama Rose in CBS’s three-hour adaptation of Gypsy. It’s set — at least for now — for December.

“Of all the musical comedies I’ve ever known, it’s the one I have the most affection for, because I love the score.” Midler said Sunday at the TV critics’ press tour here. “It’s big. It’s bombastic. It’s bright. It’s American. It’s full of puns and jokes. Sort of like me.” Read More

The Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace is sticking its toes into the complicated waters of pre-Broadway tryouts, aiming to provide new competition for the more costly Broadway in Chicago venues when it comes to tempting Broadway producers who want to develop their new work in the highly attractive Chicago theater market. The first foray will be the musical version of the 1988 Bette Midler movie “Beaches,” probably best known for the song “Wind Beneath My Wings.” Read More
