Bette Midler Takes Another Week Off From “Hello Dolly!”

Bette Midler Takes Another Week Off From “Hello Dolly!”
by Roger Friedman – September 5, 2017 10:53 am

Goodbye, Dolly, once again.

Starting tomorrow Bette Midler takes her second full week off from “Hello, Dolly!” The first back at the beginning of July.

Midler has also set her closing date for “Dolly!” as January 14, 2018. That should be the end of the run unless they can find someone to come in and take over. That’s unlikely.

The “Hello, Dolly!” cash grab is one of the most onerous in the history of Broadway. Tickets were priced well above $500-$700. Midler is likely taking home $100,000 a week or more. And she hasn’t performed matinees and missed other performances. Read More

“Congrats on removing your first monument to racism!”

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was forced out of President Donald Trump’s administration on Friday (Aug. 18), and musicians and celebrities were quick to weigh in about it on Twitter.

Most expressed glee at Bannon’s exit, while others poked fun at the strategist’s role during his brief White House tenure, referring to him as the President due to his perceived influence on Trump’s policies. Read More

BetteBack January 19, 1975: What Happened After The Cher Special Taping?

Lubbock Avalanche Journal
January 19, 1975

6046f22b68639a49a3d796c589666235

When Cher Bono wrapped up taping her first CBS-TV special, she with her steady, David Geffen (and don’t let anyone tell you differently) took off with the likes of none other than her first show guests, Elton John (In kilts and ruffles and of course, with his famous white framed glasses), Bette Midler in drab, and Richard Chamberlain along with a party of “intimates” and entourage to such a port of entertainment as Studio One in West Hollywood. They all danced together and then caught impressionist Lynn Carter
on stage in the Back Lot. What made it amazing was that many of the people crowding the big place didn’t recognize the stars. The put down was when a few did, they were rather sneered at by the Divine Miss M (whom they all apparently adored) and ignored by EJ (Mr. Music Super Star). Happily most were charmed by Chamberlain’s shyness and won over by Cher’s smiles and David’s congeniality. Read More

Hello, Dolly! review – Bette Midler is irresistible in a riotous delight

The Guardian
Hello, Dolly! review – Bette Midler is irresistible in a riotous delight
By Alexis Soloski
Friday 21 April 2017 02.00 EDT

Before our benighted age of Tinder and Grindr, couples met the old-fashioned way: they paid women money to introduce them. Musicals used to get together the old-fashioned way, too: plush costumes paired with lush sets, high-stepping dances with groanworthy jokes. These approaches survive in this bluntly nostalgic and volubly entertaining revival of the 1964 musical with lyrics and music by Jerry Herman and book by Michael Stewart. Read More

On a stage, Midler is all the rainbow you ever need.

The Divine Miss M as Dolly in “Hello, Dolly!” (Julieta Cervantes)

NEW YORK — The only time I ever saw Ethel Merman on a stage was when she played Dolly Gallagher Levi. In memory, 15-year-old me is seated in the front row — was it really the front row?!? — of the St. James Theatre, at the very end of the 6 1/2-year Broadway run of “Hello, Dolly!” Was I too young to appreciate fully the momentousness of the occasion? Yes, for sure! Read More
