The Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly! has added one final performance to Bette Midler’s Tony-winning star turn, with proceeds going to the Actors Fund. The benefit performance will take place January 14, 2018, at 8 PM.
The Tony-winning production previously announced the Sunday date as Midler’s final bow, though tickets had only been on sale for a 2 PM matinee that day.
Tickets for the evening benefit performance are now available to the public by calling the Actors Fund office at (917)281-5993. Prices range from $250 to $10,000. Tickets at $5,000 and higher will include access to a pre-show reception, and tickets in the $7,500–$10,000 range will include a post-show, onstage photo op.
The evening will also mark the final performances of Tony winner David Hyde Pierce as Horace Vandergelder and Taylor Trensch as Barnaby Tucker.
“When [producer] Scott Rudin suggested making Bette Midler’s final performance in Hello, Dolly! a benefit for The Actors Fund, my jaw hit the floor,” said Actors Fund CEO Joe Benincasa in a statement. For such a historic moment on Broadway to directly support our vital programs is a humbling thought. This night will be one for the ages.”
