Picks and Pans Review: 1993-94
Once divine, always divine. Bette Midler, 48, on tour for the first time in 10 years, was true to bawdy, razzle-dazzle form, and set box office records at New York City's Radio City Music Hall. Barbra Streisand, 51, in soaring good voice, brought down the house (well, a Las Vegas hotel) with her first public concerts since 1977. "Midler and Streisand have what used to be called animal magnetism," says producer-composer Rupert Holmes, who has worked with both. Adds Village Voice columnist Michael Musto: "It's not like Perry Como doing the song he did in 1960. They still do what they do best, but they've reinvented themselves for a new generation."
