Bette Midler is back where she belongs—crossing a passerelle in an oversized red headdress. The star returned to Broadway’s Hello, Dolly! July 17, kicking off a six-week encore engagement of her Tony-winning performance at the Shubert Theatre.

As was the case during Midler’s original run, the production celebrated a gross of over $2 million; the revival took in $2,062,015—107.85 percent of its potential—in the week ending July 22 (with Midler playing seven performances and Donna Murphy taking center stage for the Sunday matinee).

Meanwhile, the newest show on the block—Pretty Woman—had a strong start at the Nederlander Theatre. The new musical grossed $328,854 in its first two preview performances, reaching a potential of 96.3 percent and playing to full capacity.
