Joy Behar Offered Chance To Star In Touring Version Of “Hello, Dolly!”

New Now Next Joy Behar Offered Chance To Star In Touring Version Of “Hello, Dolly!” by Brandon Voss August 5, 2017 But don’t Bette on it. Hello, Joy? While there’s still no official word on who will replace Tony winner Bette Midler when she departs Broadway’s hit revival of Hello, Dolly! in January, we can probably rule out one daytime diva. The View co-host Joy Behar revealed at the top of Friday’s show that she had recently been approached to headline the upcoming tour of Hello, Dolly! as iconic matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi. “Just because I happen to look like Bette Midler,” Behar said. She went on to tell her co-hosts that she politely declined the offer. “Even if I had the desire to go on the road, I don’t sing and I don’t dance,” added the comedian and vocal LGBT rights advocate, who appeared off-Broadway in the solo show Me, My Mouth, and I. “Problems!” Since when has a celebrity needed singing or dancing skills to star in a musical?

    I think I’ve been really lucky because my gay crowd had followed me to the limit and the fact that they are so vocal and so full of joy each time they see me, I think that’s a very infectious energy in the audience at my shows.

    I think I’ve been really lucky because my gay crowd had followed me to the limit and the fact that they are so vocal and so full of joy each time they see me, I think that’s a very infectious energy in the audience at my shows. I think they’re the ones who brought the straight people around and it’s because of them that people get me to such a wonderful degree now. – Bette Midler Image may contain: 1 person, standing
