Midler announced her 'I'll Eat You Last', written by John Logan and directed by Joe Mantello , it's a a one woman show, staring ...,of course, the one and only Bette Midler, will be ready to open at the GEFFEN PLAYHOUSE in Los Angeles, CA. in December, that's on the 3rd to the 22nd. Go HERE and HERE. Record breaking profits were made last spring for Midler for 'I'll Eat You Last'. So, let's do it again.
Bette Midler was born in 1945 and raised in Hawaii. That's where she started developing her interest in drama and theater, she uses that talent often while singing and it's very effective..
In 1970 ,she began singing in THE CONTINENTAL BATHS, and HERE, a gay bath house in New York. Everybody just loved her, her pianoman at that time was BARRY MANILOW, they did some albums together 'THE DEVINE MISS M' and 'BATHHOUSE BETTY'. Click here, for a look at Bette at that time at the Continental Baths, from delagosis on YOUTUBE. It's called 'For Free'.
I always loved her saucy outrageous humor, all those amazing costumes, and her back up gals... those singers that all looked like the girls from down the street. from any town U.S.A. They were always dressed as hartlettes, or mermaids in wheelchairs swimming across the stage, or something real crazy, but it all worked for me. I always had a great time watching, and always wanted to be one of those gals when I 'grow up'. When I found myself wearing a blue housedress gaining lotsa pounds with my 'fried egg' on the outside where folks could see it....I thought her 'Hello In There' video [from BerlinDirk2]and song fit exactly how I felt, while getting use to being alittle different than others Jan
