Bette Midler takes her final cross on the passerelle in Broadway's Hello, Dolly! August 25 as the Tony-winning revival concludes its run at the Shubert Theatre.
The Jerry Zaks-helmed production opened in April 2017 before going on to win Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Musical, Leading Actress in a Musical for Midler, Featured Actor in a Musical for Gavin Creel (for his performance as Cornelius Hackl), and Costume Design of a Musical for Santo Loquasto.
Midler and her co-star, fellow Tony winner David Hyde Pierce, first departed the Scott Rudin production in January, at which point Tony winner Bernadette Peters and Tony nominee Victor Garber took center stage in celebrated turns as Dolly Gallagher Levi and Horace Vandergelder, respectively. Midler and Pierce returned July 17 to close out the run.
The cast of the Jerry Herman-Michael Stewart musical also includes Tony nominee Kate Baldwin as Irene Molloy, Charlie Stemp as Barnaby Tucker, Molly Griggs as Minnie Fay, Will Burton as Ambrose Kemper, Melanie Moore as Ermengarde, and Alli Mauzey as Ernestina.
Midler's return to the stage brought multiple box-office highs and shattered records (including the highest pre-performance advance in Broadway history) to both the Shubert Theatre and Organization as a whole.
A national tour starring Betty Buckley will launch September 30 in Cleveland.
