It takes a special performer to channel the talent of Bette Midler, and that is exactly what Cassandra Hohn does as she brings her acclaimed performance (as Bette Midler) to the Winter Park Playhouse “straight from performances in New York City!”
This fantasy tribute runs from June 3-18. Called “Bathing in Bette”, the show recreates Bette Midler’s early performances at the Continental Baths in New York in the 1970s. Written by Ms. Hohn, the show was performed to sold-out audiences in New York.
Ms. Hohn, who has performed with Norah Jones and Tony Bennett, has had great success in the New York City Cabaret Scene, where she has been crowned “The Queen of Sass.” “Bathing in Bette” will make its international debut later this year when it travels to Sydney, Australia, but first, we get to see the acclaimed performance right here in Winter Park.
Call 407-645-0145 or visit winterparkplayhouse.org. The Playhouse is located at 711-C Orange Ave. in Winter Park.
