Amber Martin: Bathhouse Bette
International crooning cabaret star, Amber Martin returns to Joe's Pub with her world-travelled hit show, Bathhouse Bette.
Amber Martin's Bathhouse Bette promises a wild and uplifting celebration of the earliest bathhouse performances by iconic singer, actor and comedian, Bette Midler. In the early 70s, the unknown rising Broadway chorus singer got her first headlining gig singing weekend shows to men in towels at the legendary gay Continental Baths in NYC. The young Bette was accompanied by a then undiscovered Barry Manilow, who would produce her first 2 albums.
Grab your favorite bath towel, robe, caftan or the like, and prepare to get a little steamy as Amber Martin pays hot tribute to the bawdy, sometimes naughty comedy, and beautiful music of Bette Midler in this budding period. Songs include: 'Friends', 'Do You Wanna Dance', 'Superstar', 'I Shall Be Released' and many others.
Our audience is encouraged to come dressed in your most creative “bathhouse” looks! Go-go dancers included!
