“That would be the hope,” Iris Rainer Dart, 74, who wrote the novel of which the movie is based, reveals to ET. “I feel very lucky, first of all, to be my age and doing this. The theater has much less ageism than the movie and television business.” Read More

Stage Adaptation of Bette Midler Film THE ROSE Aiming for Broadway

Mister D: I just don’t know. It’s real cool seeing all these adapttions coming along from Bette Midler movies (Beaches, First Wives Club, Hocus Pocus, and now The Rose) but they could never hit the mark set by her. And different scores? Forget about it. The most it would be for me is a curiosity factor mixed in with some nostalgia.

Before the curtain even went up on opening night, #HelloDolly was an event. 

Before the curtain even went up on opening night, #HelloDolly was an event. ???? #BetteMidler’s first appearance in a Broadway musical in decades? The tickets practically sold themselves. It’d be easy to get swept up just seeing Bette on Broadway, but the scale of the show rises to meet her with its standout cast, impressive choreography, and visual feast of colorful costumes. Heck, there’s even a train! ???? Did you see the standout musical this year? ????: Illustration by Patrick Faricy for EW Read More

On The Decadence Trend In The 70’s:

On The Decadence Trend In The 70’s: “Oh everyone is obsessed with decadence at the moment, because decadence is the big thing, right? In two years time it will have blown over completely, and we’ll go onto something else. I’m not worried about my relationship with decadence, simply because I transcend it. I’m at once part of it, and not a part of it For instance, there are some performers who are right there at the centre of it. Oh, not Jagger “ definitely not Jagger. He’s a rare bird “ he transcends it just like me, though net necessarily in the same way. I don’t know if I have the capacity to have his sort of career. I’m not sure at this point whether I possess that stamina.” (New Musical Express 1973) Read More
