Thanks everybody for a wonderful year! May the next year be brighter for all of us. Be safe!
The State – Columbia, SC
ON THE SCENE
Why settle for a Top 10? These are my fave 11
By OTIS TAYLOR JR.
On the Scene has seen a lot of shows this year. Of course, some were better than others. These 11 were the very best of the best:
• George Strait, Feb. 13 at the Colonial Center: The “San Antone, Texas”-style show gave me shivers. I have never been to a country show before or since that stuck with me after I wrote the review.
There was something about Strait’s stage presence that captured my attention. He isn’t much into gyrations, just some foot tapping to the beat. All he needs is his rugged yet passionate voice, which was knocking down every note.
Mister D: Fortunate enough to see 2 of these performances live…Bette and Ellen Greene….good for being a blue boy in a red state, I guess! 🙂
DIVA TALK: The Best of 2004
By Andrew Gans
December 31, 2004
News, views and reviews about the multi-talented women of the musical theatre and the concert/cabaret stage.Hello, diva lovers! This week’s column offers a backwards glance at the year that comes to a close this weekend. This year’s “best of” list includes favorite performances on the theatrical and cabaret stages as well as one television broadcast. I limited my selections to those productions that opened on or after Jan. 1, 2004, so repeat visits to Avenue Q, Gypsy and other favorite musicals that opened the previous year aren’t included.

Mister D: Isn’t it telling that the Christian Right takes a holiday on moral values during this time of crisis….but I’m not surprised. However, visiting some of these sites brought chuckles and a bit of horror. If we survivie the next 4 years under Bush, the rest of my life will be a holiday. These people are creepy!!! ( But I did get a chuckle out of Falwell’s site….Cruise with Dr Falwell on the Queen Mary!!!! LOL….Mary, puh-leeeze!!!!….and isn’t that slightly elitist????….just asking….)

I had scores of emails yesterday about “In The Pink” and to make sure to watch Entertainment Tonight….which I did.
Of course, they brought it up during the segment on Britney, saying she was to star in “In The Pink” with Bette, Cher, and Tim Allen. However, nothing was said about when it was to be filmed or when it was coming out. I thought the rumour had some truth to it because of an interview with Tim Allen during his Xmas with the Kranks movie…
(Bette and Pink)
Well….the LiveDaily.com results came in and we’re LOSERS!!!! WWWAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
Actually, I was quite surprised we got in any category, so this whole this was really special to me…and I doubt Bette even knows there was a vote….but we did get her nominated.
We lost to Madonna, MTV, and Hansen. With the first 2 I will continue to hold a grudge against, but for the latter….sorry, the guys a are just too cute and talented to dislike! 🙂

Look for Bette to grace Australia at the beginning of April to the beginning of May
Friday, December 24, 2004
I thought I’d jump in one more time and wish everyone Merry Christmas or whatever you are celebrating….the main thing to me is to celebrate goodwill to all mankind, especially during these chaotic times. Thanks to those who sent me emails and snail mail with Christmas wishes and “thank yous”….I haven’t had time to get back with everybody and am afraid some of you might fall through the cracks…just know it’s not because I don’t care….it’s just the busy, busy, business of the season.

The Charlotte Observer
Kiana’s heavenly visit with the Divine Miss M
One year, Kiana Stewart showed up for Halloween as an Oompa Loompa. Another time, she came as Cruella DeVille.
Kiana likes to sing. Kiana likes to act.
Her inspiration? Bette Midler.
“When we’re watching a movie I say, `Kiki, shhh! I can’t hear Bette Midler,’ ” says her 14-year-old older sister, Eboni. “And she says, `But I know all the words!’ “
Seven-year-old Kiana does, even though she has Noonan syndrome, a disease that presents a multitude of physical and developmental difficulties. In her case, it has resulted in two heart defects, delayed development and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
