I think that it's a safe bet that anyone who might be picking up Bette Midler's "The Showgirl Must Go On" is most likely already a fan of the Divine Miss M. So what can I tell you? Showgirl is a production that ran for approximately two years at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas between 2008 and early 2010. Taped for HBO, this is the fifth special that Midler has provided for the network in her illustrious career (the first was in 1977!). Unfortunately, the HBO airing and the subsequent DVD release and instant video does not showcase the entire Vegas production. Midler's average show clocked in at about 90 minutes and this release (as well as the televised HBO production) comes in at 67 minutes. Most of Midler's biggest and most expected numbers are intact with a song list that includes the following noteworthy numbers:

Big Noise from Winnetka, The Showgirl Must Go On, Friends, The Rose, Do You Wanna Dance, From a Distance, Boolya JaDa, Hello in There, Pretty Legs/Hot in Here, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Wind Beneath My Wings

If you saw the show live, perhaps the most noticeable omission is the uproarious disco parody. However, wishing doesn't make things different and won't add the content back into the concert. As the creative force and producer behind the show, I'm sure Midler had a hand in the final decision making process (I suspect it came down to financial matters as it usually does, especially concerning various non-Midler covers). But if you love Midler, you'll have to decide if the 70 minute version is enough to keep you entertained. And, for most, I'm guessing the answer will be "yes."

Midler provides everything you might expect in this presentation. More mature, and more prone to breathlessness, she can still light up a stage.

I was hoping to relive the experience of seeing this Bette Midler show. When we saw her in Las Vegas, our seats were pretty far back. My impression of the live show was that the huge Caesars Coliseum stage overwhelmed her since she is such a tiny person. So I was hoping for more close ups. This video seems to have been edited down from the original show. Unfortunately, just like the live show, too much time is spent on the showgirl dancers during Bette's wardrobe changes. I wanted more of Bette and less of them.

A wonderfully fun concert with Bette Midler who proves that she still has it. And even makes fun of herself for being in show business as long as she has. Her voice, timing and delivery is in perfect Midler pitch and she seems geniunely sincere that her fans have and are still there for her. Some great classic Milder tunes and sketches. You end up saying to yourself at the end: "Wow, now that's a legend!!"
Wathcing this is like visiting a longtime friend and feeling great afterward. I totally recommend this.

As A long time Bette fan, I will say there is way to much of this concert missing, It was A 90 minute show in Vegas and the DVD is 67 minutes???? honestly we can tell by watching Bette may have been just doing this one for the cash.
The usual Bette comedy and wit seem washed up and slow, if you want to see Bette at her best I HIGHLY recommend
Diva Las Vegas, it is sad when A great performer loses her spark and I miss the old Bette Midler.

It's a wonderful show to watch but nothing new, just different way to present her normal material.

From what I've heard, the cost of licensing all the songs used in the Doris DeLago section of the show was too expensive. It's a shame, indeed.
