Bette Midler Trivia


  • Trivia

    • Bette relocated from Hawaii to New York in 1966 to pursue an onstage acting career and landed her first professional role in Tom Eyen's Off-Off Broadway production of Miss Nefertiti Regrets, following it with performances in Cinderella Revisited, Eyen's children's play by day and an adult show by night. After answering an open call as a chorus member in 1967 for the national tour of Fiddler on the Roof, she later upped to the part of Tzeitel, the eldest daughter of Tevye the Milkman (Zero Mostel), and stayed with the role for three years. It was during this period that her sister Judith, who was in New York to see her perform, was hit and killed by a taxi cab (1968).
