Synopsis
"A bi-coastal crowd -pleaser ... brightened by Bette Midler's sass and sweetened with her songs." - WASHINGTON POST

"Funny, touching and consistently engaging..." - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

They met on a beach when they were very young, brassy C.C. Bloom (Bette Midler) and classy Hillary Whitney (Barbara Hershey). Through good times and bad times, through broken marriages and budding careers, they still had each other. And together, they would face their greatest challenge...as only best friends could.

Hershey is splendid, and Midler will astound you all over again with her comedic and musical talents in this critically acclaimed box office smash. Beaches glows with warmth, humor, and tenderness....This is one friendship you'll enjoy every minute of.
