I posted this in the Tony contenders thread, but thought it deserved its own. New contender for Best Actress in a Play. Bette Midler is coming back to Broadway in a one woman show!
If she’s a hit and wins, then she’s just an Oscar away from the EGOT
I hope it’s a success critically and commerically and would love to see Bette a Tony nominee. If she does she’ll have stuff competition from Laurie Metcalfe but still would be lovely to see the Divine Miss M back in the game!
I would LOVE to see Better come closer to that EGOT, and I fully believe that if she wins a Tony for this and then perhaps writes a song that gets an Oscar she could do it.
Ah, the divine Ms Bette! Go girl!
