The December 4th edition of ‘Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist will feature a special profile on Bette Midler in which she talks about her return to Broadway in HELLO DOLLY! this Spring. Below, BWW brings you a first look at the broadcast airing Sunday on NBC from 8-9 a.m. ET.
Michael Stewart‘s (book) and Jerry Herman‘s (music and lyrics) masterpiece, HELLO DOLLY!, returns to Broadway starring none other than Bette Midler. Directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks, Hello, Dolly! will begin performances at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre (225 West 44th Street) on March 15, 2017.
This production, the first new production of Hello, Dolly! to appear on Broadway since it opened more than fifty years ago, will pay tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion, which has been hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history.
