Amber Martin: Bathhouse Bette
After a raucous sold out performance this summer, Amber Martin returns with her tribute to the legendary Continental Baths and Bathhouse-era Bette Midler... in Bathhouse Bette. This performance focuses on the early 70's era of Bette Midler during her hungry show-pony days as the resident firecracker chanteuse singing at the legendary Continental Baths uptown (now a parking lot under The Ansonia). She got her start singing in the hot steamy bathhouse to men in towels, still wet from the pool and other dark spaces. Her as yet unknown accompanist was Barry Manilow (Drew Brody). As per the fashion of Bette... copious amounts of singing, stories, and dancing ensue!
With Drew Brody, Carmine Covelli, Jesse Krakow, and Boylesque dancers Valton Jackson and Richard Schieffer, Eric Schmalenberger, and Rizo!
