Still eager divas, Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler reconquered the stage
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."
