Bette still shining as brightly as ever
on 30 August 2014
The Divine Miss M shows that she has still got all the style she always had, even if she has toned down the high-octane delivery a bit. But this, if anything, is better in view of the fact there is so much else going on on stage, with girls twirling everywhere in the most dazzling costumes. Bette's relaxed manner is perfect and completely charismatic. The range is still there, from poignant ballads to all-out camp numbers, to the Soph jokes, here told as she wears a very glamorous costume indeed complete with a pink feathered headdress, ideal for her, that seems to be straight from the Rio carnival. The jokes are still told with that impeccable timing - it's impossible not to laugh, even at the ones you've heard before. Bette is a unique star!
