BetteBack August 9, 1975: I hear Bette Midler isn’t nearly so popular offstage as she is onstage. True?
August 9, 1975
Not on the evidence we have. During the New York run of “Clams on the Half Shell‘ she ordered 70 picnic hampers from the Trattoria and Brasserie restaurants to be delivered to the theater between shows on weekends, as there was no time for the cast and crew to go out to dinner.
When Alexis Smith visited Bette backstage after one show, her dressing room was crowded and Alexis didn’t recognize Bette, with no makeup and her hair pulled back.”In fact, she was introducing herself to people, ” said Alexis, who told Bette she was leaving for a Florida club date. With that, Bette took her to a corner and passed on some valuable tips about club work, a rare thing for performers to do. They usually guard their “secrets ” as closely as the Pentagon does.

Bette Midler has one word for Disney’s Planned Remake Of ‘Hocus Pocus’
DANIEL S. LEVINE 08/09/2018 06:36 PM
Bette Midler is one of the most accomplished performers today, but one movie on her resume holds a special place in the hearts of millions: Disney’s Hocus Pocus. The film keeps finding new fans, 25 years after its release, and Midler is “grateful” for the film’s success.
“We had no expectations because we didn’t get very good notices and we didn’t do the business that anyone expected us to do,” Midler said in a recent interview with Good Morning America. “And the fact that it became this cult favorite and that it plays regularly every Halloween, I mean, I have very young fans because of Winnie, because of Hocus Pocus, so I’m grateful for it.”

There’s been plenty of celebration regarding the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, but another beloved movie from 1993 is also worthy of honor, especially with Halloween around the corner.
Hocus Pocus is one of Disney’s cult favorites with children of the ’90s especially holding the movie close to their heart. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy play the witch trio known as the Sanderson Sisters who are trying to achieve immortality in Salem, Oregon, but they need a certain spellbook in order to complete the incantation, and three kids and a talking cat have run off with it.

Bette Midler Lyrics for Instagram Captions

“Night and Day” via Atlantic Records
Bette Midler is the best. She is one of the greatest singers, performers, and actors of our generation. I will fight anyone about this. She is iconic, her songs are magnificent, and her career is untouchable. She’s had hits like ‘The Rose’, ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’, ‘Delta Dawn’, and so so many more.
If you appreciate music then you surely appreciate Bette Midler. But have you used them as Instagram captions? Your followers, if they are as wise as you, will immediately notice a Bette Midler lyric. And for those who don’t, you will teach them the ways of the Divine Miss. M.

The title song from the film that launched Bette’s movie career and turned her into a Grammy, Tony, and Emmy winning superstar, “The Rose” is an evergreen royalty-earning asset … and the coming Broadway adaptation of ‘The Rose’ is set to generate even more interest in her always-popular catalog.

How to avoid the crowds at these NYC hotspots
by Johnny Oleksinski
July 11, 2018
The hot mess: Insane crowds at “Hello, Dolly!” on Broadway are a sure Bette. That’s because its Tony Award-winning star, Bette Midler, is returning to the musical for just six weeks starting July 17. During her first stint, tickets went for as much as $800 and performances were always sold out — leading to hordes of people waiting for cancellation seats all day. “The Midler lines at the Shubert are always long and lively,” PR man Rick Miramontez tells The Post. Even wilder are the fans waiting to bask in the glow of the Divine Miss M post-show. “Bette at the stage door is one of the great Broadway events,” Miramontez says.
