Bette Midler to Join List of Celebrity Producers
First there was Oprah and The Color Purple. Then there was Next Fall and Elton John, followed by Jay-Z and Will & Jada Pinkett Smith with Fela! Now, there's Bette Midler and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. The Divine Miss M, who, according to an article from Broadway.com, fell in love with the show when she saw it in London, will be making a financial investment into the roughly $10 million show and hopes to take a hands-on approach in shaping the piece for its Broadway opening this spring.
