BROADWAY WAS LIKE A carnival last night. Six to 7000 people pushing and shoving in just one block â€” wild, desrespectful and wonderful Bette Midler opening at the Minskoff, everlastingly beautiful Ingrid Bergman opening in “The Constant Wife” at the Shubert.
I’m partial to Bette’s talking.
Too bad about the Bicentennial: “All New York’s revolutionary landmarks are now gay bars” … “Jerry Minskoff built this theaterÂ so he can remember how to spell his name. It has the warmth of a Ramadalnn.”
Bette did an unforgettable impersonation of Mayor Beame playing the piano. Just raised her arms as high as she could and groped with .her fingers trying to reach the keyboard.
