The new Broadway production of Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Midler has just, in its third week of preview performances, shattered the house record for the highest weekly gross of any show in the history of the Sam S. Shubert Theatre.  (The Shubert Theatre was built in 1913.)  The record-breaking gross of $1,965,673.00 was achieved in just seven performances over the week ending Sunday, April 2.  The previous record, of $1,902,189.44, was set by Matilda over the 9-performance week ending January 1, 2017. 

This production of Michael Stewart and Jerry Herman’s masterpiece, Hello, Dolly!,  has quickly become the hottest ticket of the year, having previously broken the records for the best first day of ticket sales and the largest pre-performance advance sale in Broadway history.

Directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks and choreographed by Tony Award winner Warren Carlyle,Hello, Dolly! began performances at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre on March 15, 2017, and will officially open on April 20, 2017
