“Red” By Bette Midler

I read that it’s all black and white.
Oooh, the spectrum made a shade I like!
Ooh, those crinsom rays of ruby bright.
Ah! The technicolor li-i-ight!

Red! Red! I want red!
There’s no substitute for red!
Red! Paint it red!
Green ain’t mean compared to red!

You don’t know what it does to me.
Yeah, that crimson sin intensity!
I’m haunted by the mystery,
yeah, yeah, the mystery of red, red, red! Read More

BetteBack July 23, 1977: Trouble On The Bette Set?

Salt Lake Tribune
July 23, 1977

Don’t hold your breath until the Bette Midler special gets on the tube. The Divine Miss M who signed to make her TV starring bow on NBC after she and ABC couldn’t agree on a concept, was supposed to be wrapping up taping next week on the video hour NBC was planning for fall airing. But now that taping has been pushed back until Sept. 26 — at least. And there’s no telling when an air date will be set.

Could Bette Take Home Her Second Tony? It’s Highly Possible!

The Huffington Post
Best Actress in a Play Tony Race — It’s Never Too Early to Start Thinking Ahead
By Cara Joy David

I love tough Tony Award races. I love when there are so many eligible contenders for a given category, I don’t even know who is going to be nominated. So I am super excited about the Best Actress in a Play Tony Award category.

In my decade plus career, I don’t remember a better slate of contenders than we have this year. There are so many people who any other year would be nominated, but this year will fall short. With so many shows left to come, it may seem a little early to start talking about Tony categories. Insiders know however — it’s never too early to start thinking about the Tony race. After all, many producers make decisions based on the races. Producers rush certain shows in during weak seasons. It’s very rare that the Tony Awards Administration Committee (which decides category eligibility) denies a petition, so producers often choose whether to petition to move an actor up to lead or down to featured based on the competition in a given category. (Performers listed above the title are generally eligible in Best Actress/Actor, performers below the title in the featured categories. The Administration Committee can change this and so, for example, one would think Kate Arrington, above-the-title for Grace, would be considered featured if the producers petition the Administration Committee accordingly.)
