Jerry Zac’s On Bette Midler And Hello Dolly!


Jerry Zaks: “I loved show business. As a kid it made me crazy. In 1964, at 18, I bought a $10 standing ticket to ‘Hello, Dolly!’ I went back three times. Standing up. So I guess dreams come true. Rudin’s what made this happen. He cracked the whip to get it done. He knew Bette. Knew she’s ideal. He ‘hocked’ her and ‘hocked’ her for years. She said no .?.?. wasn’t sure. And who expected such excitement? She was great to work with. I’d say, ‘Try this.’ She’d try it. She trusted me to be her eyes.”
