BenWagnerArts I would KILL to see her play matron mama Morton in @ChicagoMusical #heavenonstage dustin_cvt Not roles big enough for her talent but Madame Morrible in Wicked or Mama Morton in Chicago would be great stunt casting!
Midler would be a fun choice for the "keeper of the keys, countess of the clink, the matron of murderess row" - Mama Morton! She'd bring down the house with "When You're Good to Mama" and one can just imagine her line deliveries during "Class."
