Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment presents

“Bette Midler And Me”

“When I’m on stage – it’s a party,” quipped Bette Midler.  So join in the fun, and catch Sue’s Kelvin’s roller-coaster ride through the Divine Miss M’s fabulous career. Sue covers songs like ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’, ‘The Rose’, ‘I’m A Woman’ and ‘Wind Beneath Your Wings’, accompanied by Tony Award winning Sarah Travis.   She explores how Bette inspired her to don seven inch platform shoes, and become a West End diva herself, starring in ‘Wicked’ and ‘Chicago’.   Oh, and the show also features an outrageous three minute puppet show version of ‘Beaches’.  Simply divine!
