Will the divine Miss M — Bette Midler, succeed or fail in her big Broadway comeback at Broadway’s Minskoff Theatre? We’re betting she’ll be a rave despite all the dire predictions that she ruined her career lying around out of sight for a whole year. Tickets
to this campy event are hard to come by and the powers-that-be made it a policy not to invite any press for Bette’s opening if the press in question had ever said a word against her in the past.

By the by, detractors of Bette’s manager, Aaron Russo, may rave on and on about how he is Svengali-ing her career to death, but the guy is very much in love with her and his motives are excellent, all in Bette’s behalf.

Aaron loves Bette so much, he wants to marry her in the worst way, but she is still saying no waltzing down the aisles, just samba-ing in the balcony.
