Flashback Friday: It's Macaroni Midler!
Could a revival of Rochelle, Rochelle: The Musical be Bette's next Broadway project?
After coming through the dark tunnel of the Divine Miss M's decades-long hiatus at Wednesday's opening of I'll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers, something we've all learned is that a Bette-less Broadway is no Broadway at all. With that in mind, TheaterMania (in collaboration with Jerry Seinfeld) has taken the liberty of lining up her next show, a revival of the fictional musical Rochelle, Rochelle, in which she starred on the classic sitcom Seinfeld.
For a preview of Bette's 2014 Tony Award-winning performance, watch her belt out the show's title number in the presence of Kramer and her macaroni likeness from a hospital bed. Not even inhaling the jungle of blue feathers that line her bathrobe can stop Midler from performing with less than perfect diction…the sign of a true Broadway star.
