Amber Martin in Bathhouse Bette
SPECIAL GUESTS RUPERT NOFFS | PIANIST JEREMY BRENNAN
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 as-yet-unknown house accompanist, Barry Manilow. Bathhouse Bette is an uplifting celebration of the earliest bathhouse performances by iconic singer, actor and comedian, Bette Midler.
Prepare to get a little steamy as Bathhouse Bette pays tribute to the bawdy, sometimes naughty comedy, and beautiful music of Bette Midler in a celebration of the earliest bathhouse performances by the iconic singer, actor and comedian.
This performance focuses on the early 70’s, when a 26-year-old, hungry, as-yet-unknown chorus girl, Bette Midler, got her chops as the resident firecracker chanteuse singing at the legendary Continental Baths uptown (now a parking lot under The Ansonia). As per the fashion of bawdy Bette… copious amounts of singing, stories and dancing ensue! Amber will be performing live with special steamy surprises & her very own “Barry”, the brilliant Rupert Noffs! Accompanied by Pianist Jeremy Brennan.
DRESS CODE: The audience is encouraged to come dressed in their most creative bathhouse attire.
“I haven’t laughed like that in I don’t know when. Amber is the real deal, a fucking scream, like I Love Lucy on acid beyond the pale! I think she is brilliant!” – Sandra Bernhard
“The pitch-perfect, multi-talented Martin seamlessly floats between multiple costumes, personae and skits, never once leaving the stage, and carrying the calm of a seasoned performer”. – The New York Times
