At her annual Hulaween Bash benefitting the New York Restoration Project, we spoke to Midler about how rehearsals are going. The Divine Miss M, who was once again dressed as Winifred Sanderson from her 1993 instant Halloween classic Hocus Pocus, sounds thrilled about her return to the Great White Way.”It’s going great; everyone is so excited. All the kids are beautiful, they sing like birds. It’s so marvelous,” Midler told Broadway.com.Does Midler see any similarities between Dolly Levi and Winnie Sanderson? “None. Are you mad? [As Winnie] I’m 700 years old and Dolly was just in her early 50s.”Midler may not see similarities, but went hard on the fun-sized chocolate bars and created this mashup of some of our favorite Hocus Pocus moments with lines from Hello, Dolly!  Let these GIFs put a spell on you. Happy Halloween! View Commentslast_img read more
