AP Drama Writer

NEW YORK (AP) – It’s a match made in musical theater heaven – Bette Midler will star in a Broadway revival of “Hello, Dolly!”

Producer Scott Rudin said Tuesday that the Divine Miss M will take on the role of Dolly Gallagher Levi in a revival of the classic musical due to start next year.

The musical tells the story of self-professed “meddler” Dolly Levi who receives her toughest challenge yet when a rich grump seeks a suitable wife.

Performances on Broadway begin on March 13, 2017, with an official opening night of April 20, 2017. Rehearsals begin one year from Tuesday.

The revival will be directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zak and have choreography by Tony-winner Warren Carlyle.
