Show Overview

About Hello, Dolly!

Winner of 4 Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Actress in a Musical (Bette Midler), this universally acclaimed production of Hello, Dolly! “is making people crazy happy” (The Washington Post). Ms. Midler is “a once-in-a-lifetime Dolly," says The New York Times. And Rolling Stone cheers, “it’s coronation time: Bette Midler is the queen of Broadway. Wow, wow, wow indeed.”

Directed by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks, this “impeccable blend of spectacle and star power” (Entertainment Weekly) smashed house records numerous times, and achieved the highest weekly gross in the history of the entire Shubert Organization. It pays tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion, hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history. “Everything Bette Midler does stops the show,” says The New York Times, “let's just hope this show's producers have earthquake insurance.”

Don't miss "the best show of the year" (NPR) — Hello, Dolly!, at the Shubert Theatre (225 W. 44th St.).
