Bette Midler’s Birthday Breaks Broadway Box Office Record

What goes up, must come down. Unless you’re Bette Midler, of course.

As the rest of Broadway sank into a post-turkey stupor, Hello, Dolly! sneaked in another house record at the Shubert Theater. Just $10,000 higher than last week, the $2.48 million gross nonetheless marks the 12th time this production has cracked its own ceiling. And on Midler’s birthday, to boot. Not a bad way to kick off one’s 72nd year. (Oh, and she earned a Grammy nomination for the cast album, too.) Read More

Bette Midler digs into role of Dolly for Broadway

Bette Midler digs into role of Dolly for Broadway
By Michael Paulson
New York Times News Service • Friday February 5, 2016

Bette Midler has never seen Hello, Dolly! onstage.

She has seen the movie and was generally familiar with the story, but when producer Scott Rudin started calling her months ago, asking her to consider starring in a revival of the musical on Broadway, she knew that she had homework to do before committing.

She went to the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts to watch a film of Carol Channing in the 1995 revival, and to YouTube to watch clips of Pearl Bailey in the 1975 revival. She watched The Matchmaker, a 1958 film starring Shirley Booth that is adapted from the same Thornton Wilder play that inspired the musical. Read More
