AMBER MARTIN in Bathhouse Bette
“The pitch-perfect, multi-talented Martin seamlessly floats between multiple costumes, personae and skits, never once leaving the stage, and carrying the calm of a seasoned performer”. – The New York Times
After sold-out performances at Joe’s Pub in NYC, RudeMechs in Austin, TX and Oasis in San Francisco, Amber Martin now brings to Sydney, her hilarious, loving tribute to early, Bathhouse-era Bette Midler… in her Broadway World award-nominated Bathhouse Bette.
This performance focuses on the early 70’s, when a 26 year-old, hungry, as-yet-unknown chorus girl, Bette Midler, got her chops as the resident firecracker chanteuse singing at the legendary Continental Baths uptown (now a parking lot under The Ansonia). She earned her “camp medal” in the hot & steamy bathhouse, singing to men in towels, still wet from the pool and other dark spaces.
Her also as-yet-unknown house accompanist was none other than Barry Manilow.
As per the fashion of bawdy Bette… copious amounts of singing, stories and dancing ensue!
Amber will be performing live with special steamy surprises & her very own “Barry” from Sydney… MD/Pianist Jeremy Brennan
