Ahead of her return to the Broadway stage, Bette Midler is making headlines due to her social media presence. Midler took to Facebook Sunday night to weigh in on the Oscars, discussing everything from Leo Dicaprio's big win and the diversity issues. That is not all. Midler has also been weighing in Republican Presidential race and the feud between Trump and Rubio.
Bette Midler is set to star in a Broadway revival of "Hello, Dolly!" in 2017 produced by Scott Rudin and directed by Jerry Zaks.
'Hello Dolly' is coming back to Broadway and I think we can all agree that we want to see her never go away again. Bette Midler will be stepping into the shoes of the famous matchmaker originated by the incomparable Carol Channing in the Original Broadway 1964 run. Directed by Tony winner Jerry Zaks, Dolly will return to the Great White Way in the spring of 2017.
Composer/lyricist Jerry Herman was the first to have three shows that have run for over 1,500 performances on Broadway.
"Frozen" out of the Tonys this year, Idina Menzel might look back to 1964 when 'Hello Dolly!' and Carol Channing took 10 awards to 'Funny Girl' and Barbra Streisand's zero.
