Bette Midler — Broadway, “Beaches,” and Beyond: INTERVIEW

With only a handful of days before she “waves her little hand and whispers, so long dearie” to Broadway’s Hello Dolly, Bette Midler sat down with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts for an “exit interview.”

(video still)

Bette gets personal about the way this Broadway experience changed her life; what brought her back to the role of Dolly for a final farewell; and what makes Beaches such an enduring film thirty years later.


“We feel the room swayin’
For the band’s playin’
One of your old fav’rite songs from ‘way back when”
