Outlook THE NEWS SCROLL 11 JANUARY 2018 Last Updated at 4:08 PM Four H`wood celebrities who powered through awards-show play-off music

Los Angeles [U.S.A], January 11 : “Lower the music, it’s taken 25 years. Give me a minute,” said Guillermo Del Toro, after winning his first ever Golden Globe for Best Director at this year’s star-studded ceremony.

He totally admonished the orchestra for trying to cut short his acceptance speech. But, if you thought that he was the only celebrity to power through the awards-show play-off music, then you are wrong.

Here are four Hollywood stars, who ‘shut’ the music which was ruining a fairytale moment in their career: Read More

How Bette Midler became Dolly, according to David Hyde Pierce
By Broadway News

In 2017, Bette Midler seemed to be back where she belongs. 

As Dolly Gallagher Levi in “Hello, Dolly!,” Bette Midler won the 2017 Tony Award for best actress in a leading role in a musical, among numerous other awards, and helped the musical break the Shubert Theatre’s box office record 12 times. Even before Midler began performances, “Hello, Dolly!” brought in the largest pre-performance advance sale in Broadway history.  Read More

Bette Midler’s Birthday Breaks Broadway Box Office Record

Forbes
Bette Midler’s Birthday Breaks Broadway Box Office Record
Lee Seymour , CONTRIBUTOR
December 4, 2017

What goes up, must come down. Unless you’re Bette Midler, of course.

As the rest of Broadway sank into a post-turkey stupor, Hello, Dolly! sneaked in another house record at the Shubert Theater. Just $10,000 higher than last week, the $2.48 million gross nonetheless marks the 12th time this production has cracked its own ceiling. And on Midler’s birthday, to boot. Not a bad way to kick off one’s 72nd year. (Oh, and she earned a Grammy nomination for the cast album, too.) Read More

BetteBack June 1975: Bette Midler – The New Taste

In The Know
Bette Midler: The New Taste
June 1975
James Spada

The curtain goes up in New York’s Minskoff Theatre, and the anticipatory audience sees a huge fishnet strung hammock like across the stage. Suddenly an equally large clam comes sliding down, settling into the middle of the net. It slowly opens and out pops Bette Midler, wrap­ped in a Dorothy Lamour sarong, to begin her latest act, the “Clams on the Half Shell Revue.”

The opening of Bette Midler’s newest triumphant theatre en­gagement is, unintentionally, more appropriate than camp. She’s been in her own personal shell for nearly 18 months, mak­ing no personal appearances, filming no TV shows, turning down major movie offers and Broadway shows and, most un­settling of all to her fans, not even planning a new album to follow her Golden biggies The Divine Miss M and Bette Midler.
