by Mark Shenton – Dec 4, 2017

It opened to the largest pre-performance advance sale in Broadway history, and week after week it has been breaking the Shubert Theatre’s house record for its weekly take.

What goes up, must come down. Unless you’re Bette Midler, of course.

As the rest of Broadway sank into a post-turkey stupor, Hello, Dolly! sneaked in another house record at the Shubert Theater. Just $10,000 higher than last week, the $2.48 million gross nonetheless marks the 12th time this production has cracked its own ceiling. And on Midler’s birthday, to boot. Not a bad way to kick off one’s 72nd year. (Oh, and she earned a Grammy nomination for the cast album, too.) Read More
