Mister D: Isn’t Cojo that rabid dog from the Stephen King movie? OOPS – I forgot….it’s Cujo!!!!! LOL Okay I was just trying to be funny. All Cojo fans, please forgive me…..
Okay…fuck it again, here it is:
BETTE MIDLER’s all-new Las Vegas production, The Showgirl Must Go On, debuts tonight at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and our own COJO is with the Divine Miss M!
“I wanted to do something really lively, beautiful, colorful,” Bette tells Cojo. “I wanted to celebrate the feminine form. I want it to be a little bit raunchy. I want it to be sort of the essence of Vegas — the thing that people come to Vegas for.”
Full of Bette’s trademark wit, harmony and humor, the new show features some of the veteran performer’s most colorful characters, from Delores Delago (the wheelchair-bound mermaid) to the oldest living showgirl in Las Vegas — old, old, old Soph. The Showgirl Must Go On also features a 13-piece band and 20 female dancers. Bette is expected to perform approximately 100 shows a year, five nights a week (except Mondays and Thursdays).
“My dream is to have a show with feathers and rhinestones and sequins,” says Bette, “and entrances and smoke and fire and mirrors and all the stuff you think about when you think about Vegas — but also with a little bit of story behind it, so the audience has something to hang onto. So it’s not just boobs and boas.”
Love, Mister D
PS: Lord, please let me have a break now!!!
