BetteBack September 24, 1998: Bathhouse Betty Review (Hartford Courant)

Hartfort Courant
September 24, 1998|By GREG MORAGO

When America sees Bette Midler perform, it’s usually in stage and TV spectaculars that capitalize on her big, bawdy, naughty audaciousness — or should we say bodaciousness. Flash, trash and slash (the claws always seem just a tad too eagerly positioned), the Divine Miss M often comes off as a jeweled confection, albeit Pop Rocks.

What gets lost in these Vegasy endeavors is Midler’s keen musicality — her deep appreciation of the lyric, her actorly sense of timing, her emotive ways with the ballad and the sublime tenderness she confers on the love song. Read More

Bette Midler On Being Stereotyped As Outrageous:

Bette Midler On Being Stereotyped As Outrageous: “Yes, it can become a kind of straitjacket. I think that’s what’s happened to a lot of people in the last 10 or 15 years. Once the floodgates came down and you could say anything, it just seemed like people would say anything and then it wasn’t very entertaining. And that’s not good. I’m sorry it happened, because in the old days you could seek out performers like that, but now, with everything being so up front, it seems like there’s a variety of people all singing the same song. You don’t have to seek them out. They’re all over the TV.” (1993) Read More
