Bathhouse Bette is an uplifting celebration of the earliest bathhouse performances by iconic singer, actor and comedian, Bette Midler. In the early 70s, an unknown rising Broadway chorus singer got her first headlining gig singing weekend shows to men in towels at the legendary Continental Baths for gay men in NYC. The young Bette was accompanied by a then undiscovered Barry Manilow.
Grab your complimentary bath towel and prepare to get a little steamy as Bathhouse Bette pays tribute to the bawdy, sometimes naughty comedy, and beautiful music of Bette Midler in this budding period. Songs include: 'Friends', 'Do You Wanna Dance', 'Superstar', 'I Shall Be Released' and many others.
