On Twitter, Bette Midler had this to say @BetteMidler

WELL!! Now I hear I have been offered “Hello, Dolly”! First I’ve heard of it. Still I would look great coming down that staircase…

As BroadwayWorld reported last week, Midler is rumored as being considered for a large-scale, Nederlander-produced revival of the classic Broadway musical Hello, Dolly!, which will be coming to Broadway in the near future.

Midler began her legendary career as an entertainer in 1965, in New York, where she developed the trademark act that would make her one of the most renowned talents of her generation. Her debut album, 1972’s The Divine Miss M set her on the path that has led her to earn Grammys, Emmys, Golden Globes and Academy Award nominations in a career that has spanned over 40 years. She has toured the world, sold millions of albums, published two books and appeared in over two dozen films, including The Rose, Beaches, Ruthless People, Hocus Pocus, First Wives Club and For The Boys. In addition to her work on stage and in films, Bette has made her mark in television, with the Emmy Award-winning CBS special of Ol Red Hair Is Back, and several HBO concerts, Live at Last and Art or Bust, and the Emmy Award-winning Diva Las Vegas.

  1. I agree that she would be terrific in “Hello, Dolly”, but have to agree with the critics from your previous post that “Mame” is a better vehicle for her. It will be interesting to see if she remains as interested in Broadway as the critics are in her, despite the ongoing Tony snubs (first, “Priscilla”–well, mostly, and then “I’ll Eat You Last”). She has proven to be quite the box office draw, nonetheless, which is not surprising in the least. In a sea of empty Broadway hits, Bette’s proved to be the most successful–now she needs to be rewarded for it by its community. Do I still sound bitter about the Tony snub? You betcha. My vote, though, goes to “Mame”.

    1. I agree with everything you said. My vote goes to Mame as well, but I’d definitely take Dolly, too….xx
