Betty Buckley: Hello, Dolly! National Tour is a “Gift”

Broadway legend Betty Buckley says she’s “so excited” to be a part of the first national tour of Hello, Dolly!

Buckley told Michael Riedel and Christine Nagy on “In the Wings” that it’s a “gift” to be able to take this show on the road.

“It’s a beautiful production and our cast is absolutely glorious,” Buckley said.

Buckley stars as Dolly Gallagher Levi.  She admits she had to think about whether to take the role, because much of her adult life has been in dramatic performances. Read More

So long dearie, hello profits. Sort of.

The Tony-winning revival of Hello, Dolly! concluded this weekend, after an unprecedented run. Original star Bette Midler returned for the final weeks, elevating grosses back to eye-watering levels, with a final frame tally of $2.34 million. During her initial award-winning stint, the show broke its own box office record twelve times.

But for a hit that grossed $128.19 million (more than any revival in Broadway history not called Chicago), some investors have been grumbling. While the production recouped its $15.9 million investment last winter, a detailed report of its finances disclosed that backers only made 5% on their buy-in as of last week. Read More

Curtain Call: Bette Midler Will Soon Call It Quits With Hello Dolly

December 23, 2017

Bette Midler has a long and star-studded career, spanning decades. She started her sojourn in the theater off-Broadway until her first Broadway appearance in 1967s Fiddler on The Roof. Since then, she has made countless appearances on stage and in film.

In April 2017, she took on the title role in the Broadway revival of Hello Betty. Now, after almost two years gracing the stage, she is set to take a final bow from the production. Her exit is not for lack of enthusiasm for the show. Rather, she cites her age as a major factor informing her decision. Read More

The hot mess: Insane crowds at “Hello, Dolly!” on Broadway are a sure Bette. That’s because its Tony Award-winning star, Bette Midler, is returning to the musical for just six weeks starting July 17. During her first stint, tickets went for as much as $800 and performances were always sold out — leading to hordes of people waiting for cancellation seats all day. “The Midler lines at the Shubert are always long and lively,” PR man Rick Miramontez tells The Post. Even wilder are the fans waiting to bask in the glow of the Divine Miss M post-show. “Bette at the stage door is one of the great Broadway events,” Miramontez says. Read More
