STAGE TUBE: On This Day 12/1- Bette Midler
Welcome to BWW's THIS DAY Series celebrating theatrical birthdays, openings and special events that took place on this day in theatre history!
Happy Birthday, Bette Midler! Bette Midler produced the recent Broadway musical "Priscilla Queen of the Desert.' She made her Broadway debut playing Tzeitel in Fiddler on the Roof. Thereafter, she began singing in clubs around town including at the famed Continental Baths where she developed the trademark act that would make her one of the most renowned talents of a generation. Midler's first starring role in the feature film, The Rose, garnered two Golden Globe Awards, a Grammy for the film's title song and a best actress Oscar nomination. She most recently starred on Broadway as Sue Mengers in I'll Eat You Last.
In celebration of this day, we bring you 'Rose's Turn' from Gypsy. Click below to check it out!
