Bette Brings in Big Bucks: ‘Hello, Dolly!’ Crashes Shubert Records

Hello Dolly Bette Midler

The new Broadway production of Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Midler has already made a habit out of breaking the house record at the Shubert Theatre, and now it has had the best week in the history of the entire Shubert Organization.  As previously announced, Hello, Dolly!, on the heels of its ecstatic reviews,  grossed $2,105,473 over just seven performances, last week.  This number tops the previous highest weekly gross in the organization’s history, set by Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway with $2,056,956 over nine performances.  The Shubert Organization is America’s oldest professional theatre company and the largest theatre owner on the Broadway. Shubert currently owns and operates seventeen Broadway theatres and six off-Broadway venues.

This production of Michael Stewart and Jerry Herman’s masterpiece, Hello, Dolly! instantly became the hottest ticket of the year when it broke the record for the best first day of ticket sales in Broadway history.  By the time it began previews, it had the largest pre-performance advance sale in Broadway history.  It previously broke the Shubert Theatre house record over the weeks ending April 2 and April 16 with $1,965,673 and $2,032,256, respectively.

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 officially opened on Thursday, April 20, 2017.

This Hello, Dolly!, the first new production of the classic musical (based on Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker)  to appear on Broadway since it opened more than fifty years ago, pays tribute to the original work of legendary director/ choreographer Gower Champion, which has been hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history.
