At the beginning of 2008, the Divine Miss M brought her delicious self to a 2-year-plus residency in Caesars, taking over Céline Dion's remarkable run. The Coliseum venue was built just for Céline, but the diva has left the building. Midler's bawdy jokes and belting vocals belie her 60-something age, as she delivers a classic show. You know, singing, dancing, joke telling, charisma, not to mention mermaid costumes and Sophie Tucker homages. This is Vegas entertainment as it was -- a great performer doing what she does best, no gimmicks, night after night. There will be 100 shows throughout the year, usually in 4-week blocks, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday through Sunday at 8pm.
