Not that Miss Midler is a no talent freak like Cooper. To the contrary, she is a very talented singer and performer.
But her show is bizarre and gimmicky on the same tone as Cooper, although while Cooper enrages his audiences, Miss Midler delights her fans.

Tickets start at 650.00 for balcony seats, then next are the ever fabulous $1000.00 seats.
I do believe the Buds get in for a cheaper price or free (but you have to be a member)…Buds spread the word on this….
Tickets then go up to 2500.00 each to 6500.00 Each…for whatever price ticket you pay, you’re helping NYRP provide certain functions…
Producers Arlie Cone and Steven Hayes are continuing development of a new musical based loosely on the life and career of Sammy Davis, Jr., which is now entitled I Will, I Can.
In an earlier exploration, the piece was called Yes I Can, but the work is now on a “new path,” a spokesman for the producers said. A winter 2012 workshop reported by Playbill did not materialize.
Reminder: Donna Maxon ~ â€œBette & Barry: Back to the Bathhouseâ€ plays Wednesday and Aug. 15 at the Laurie Beechman Theatre
Mister D: And if I’m not mistaken, our friend Matthew Parker is one of the background singers!

Ask anybody about great but gone music venues in New York, and theyâ€™ll go on and on about CBGB, the Fillmore East, Maxâ€™s Kansas City and the Savoy Ballroom.

Q: Where’s that divine Bette Midler these days? I saw her on TV a few times, but nothing new lately.â€”P.W., Savannah, Fla.
A: The Divine Miss M sings the theme song “Friends” in the new hit film, “The Last of Sheila.” She is busy now making an album with material ranging from “Higher and Higher” to “Chattanooga Choo Choo.”
Three ABC–TV specials are scheduled beginning next March. Bette is also preparing for a 30-stop tour opening at the Mississippi River Festival in Edwardsville, III., on August 28 and ending in Philadelphia on Nov. 28.
NEW YORK: No one could say that success has crept up on Bette Midler-it burst upon her like one of those tropical thunderstorms that sometimes hit her native Hawaii. Unknown only a short time ago, she has become one of the most popular young talents in America today. Her performance on last winter’s Burt Bacharach special was sensational!
When asked when she first realized she had become a star, she replied: “I haven’t realized it yet! It all seems like a fairy tale life. So it’s hard to believe it’s me people are talking about.”
