Sophie on her mom’s Tony acceptance speech

Sophie on her mom’s Tony acceptance speech: “First of all, I just love that she turned the entire thing into a bit,” said von Haselberg. “Everybody was sitting there, and all of a sudden she’s saying, ‘Cut that- turn that shit off!’ I think that she took the space in a way that, to me, not a lot of other people are capable of doing. And I just loved watching it. My dad and I were sitting there, half-cringing, half-grinning because it was just so classically her. It was great—and I’m just happy it made such an impression.” (2017) – Sophie von Haseiberg Read More

Broadway Rebounds As Bette Midler Breaks Another Record

Broadway Rebounds As Bette Midler Breaks Another Record

Broadway loves a good rebound, and there’s no better pick-me-up than Bette Midler.

Back from a planned vacation, the Tony winner not only survived a tumble off the stage of Hello, Dolly! but also broke the house record at the Shubert Theater for the sixth time since the show opened this spring. It grossed $2.32 million over eight performances, with the average seat going for $199.

This year Midler has been the undisputed queen of Broadway. Thanks to her clout, Dolly! racked up over $40 million in advance sales before it even opened, and went on to win the Tony for Best Musical Revival. In addition to Midler’s for Best Actress, it also garnered trophies for Best Featured Actor (Gavin Creel), and Best Costume Design (Santo Loquasto). Read More

BetteBack March 28, 1997: Those Oscar moments: highlights and lowlights

March 28, 1997

Ah, the Oscars: the pageantry, the pomp, the goofy over*thc-topness of it all. This year’s 69th Academy Awards didn’t disappoint — though some carp that the 3V*-hour show didn’t have as many of the show-stopping, deliciously embarrassing moments of years past. Still, here are a few of the more piquant moments:

Most Authentic Surprise (tie): Lauren Bacall, the heavy favorite for best supporting actress, who didn’t win it, and Juliette Binoche, who did. “I thought Lauren was going to get it and I think she deserves it,” said a wonderfully shocked Binoche. “This is a dream. It must be a French dream, I think. Bye.” (Tip for those who taped the show: Catch the moment when the Binoche’s name is announced and watch the faces of Bacall and Binoche.) Read More
