Well, Hello, Bette! Comments (0)

Seeing Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly! next week — can't wait. 

I've never even seen this show, nor have I ever seen the movie. I know, I know. There are some holes in my gay past. I did know about the show as a kid, thanks to this:

I'm particularly interested at this time, having finished Carleton Carpenter's excellent autobiography, in which he recalls touring with the show opposite Mary Martin (whom he loved) and Ginger Rogers (seemingly, less so).

Unnamed(Image via Joe's Pub)

The Bronx Queen, by Joe Gulla, is playing at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater on November 15 at 9:30 p.m. ET.

The show is the first in Gulla's Bronx Queen Trilogy, with Faggy at 50 coming next year. (Faggy at 50 comes for me in two years this Christmas.)

Find out more about Gulla via his Next interview, and get tickets to the show here. Anyone who attends Bette Midler's Hulaween dressed as Donald Trump's missing taxes is our Helen Hayes, as far as I'm concerned.
