Bette Midler & The Harlettes Singing ‘Auld Lang Syne’ From The Divine Miss Millennium Tour December 31, 1999 (Audio Only)
An Interview With Gavin Creel by Christy Labonte
December 31, 2016
Gavin is playing the Cornelius role in Hello Dolly.
He talked about how this was his last public performance as he would be starting rehearsals for Hello, Dolly on January 16th. He said he is thrilled to be working with Bette who is such a legend and mentioned the 9.1 million dollar first day ticket sales. During the night they talked about his life and career and in between he would sing songs. At one point he sang I Think It’s Gonna Rain Today and when he was done, he mentioned how it was in Beaches and mentioned how in the movie Bette’s character was singing it in a studio as Barbara Hershey‘s character was getting more sick and how Marc Shaiman produced that soundtrack who he adores and he happened to have a chance to work with.

Bette Midler On Her Songwriting: “My songs always come out off the wall. They’re rarely straight ahead love songs. They’re mostly whimsical, child-like songs. I guess that’s what my view of the world is. Innocent with a touch of dementia. I’d like to grow up one of these days. I’d like to kick off this childhood. I want to be able to deal with the world.” (The Free Lance-Star, Sep 22, 1979)

For a lot of us, famous and normals alike, 2016 was a narrative we would like to be excluded from and that we never asked to be a part of.
But if nothing else, it was a great year for celebrity gossip. Thanks to social media, egos and impulse control had a banner year — for better and most certainly for worse. Here are the best celebrity feuds of a very petty year.

From the opening of the new Nassau Coliseum to the rebooted “Spider-Man” and “24” and Bette Midler’s much-anticipated starring role in “Hello, Dolly!” here’s a look at what’s in store for 2017 in music, TV, movies and theater.
(Credit: SHoP Architects)How much will the renovated Nassau Coliseum — now fully named Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum Presented by New York Community Bank — change the Long Island landscape when it reopens April 5? Well, it will bring Billy Joel, Stevie Nicks, The Pretenders, Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey to Uniondale. And that’s just the first week. Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Roger Waters and New Kids on the Block are already scheduled for the rest of the year, all part of a new booking arrangement with Barclays Center that bundles the venues together to help A-level artists route their tours through Long Island again.
