Time Reviews Bette Midler

Time Magazine took in the brand new Bette Midler extravaganza The Showgirl Must Go On which began performances last week at Caesars Palace

Most notable in the review is a photo of Ms. Midler having her boobs cupped by attendant showgirls, choreographed by "Mickey" singer Toni Basil

The show itself, while playing off of Ms. Midlers predilection for harmless knee slapper kvetching, was written by Eric Korngold and comedian/Hollywood Squares/Biggest Loser participant Bruce Vilanch.

From Time's take on the show, it looks like an updated, high tech version of an old Sophie Tucker show, which is pretty much who Ms. Midler has modeled her entire career after.



Comments & Discussion:

I was dragged to this show by the friends I went to Vegas with and it's a very good show. I was slightly taken aback by having to go through a metal detector on the way in but when I sat in my comfy seat I got past that. The show started on time and with a video package that showed a hurricane tear Vegas up. There are loud big production numbers combined with some quiet moments and it is less bawdy than you would think. We get to see some regular bits (Dolores the mermaid and the world's oldest showgirl) but one friend complained that she didnt do some numbers she would have done in a regular show. I actually enjoyed the experience and I am not a huge Midler fan. The theater is wonderfully laid out.
