Now unless you've been living under a rock for the past nine months, you know that Hello Dolly is headed back to Broadway. Not only that, but it is starring the one and only Bette Midler. The show, which sold over nine million dollars on it's first day of sale, is set to begin previews at the historic Shubert Theatre on March 15, with opening night scheduled for April 20.
Starring along side the Divine Miss M is Tony and Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce as Horace Vandergelder. Sounds like good casting to me. Please note that while Bette Midler is scheduled to perform in the show thru January 14, 2018, she is scheduled to miss the following performances.
June 27-July 2
July 30 7:30pm
October 15 7:30pm
October 30-November 5
November 24 2pm
Filling in for Bette is two-time Tony Award winner Donna Murphy ( Passion, The King and I). Also note that beginning on June 13, Ms. Murphy will be performing the role of Dolly Levi on Tuesday evening performances. Now while I realize people are coming to see the show because of Bette, Donna Murphy is a fantastic actress in her own right, and should be incredible in the role. Get your tickets to see Bette Midler in Hello Dolly at the Shubert Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
