Broadway wants to make a match with its new Dolly Gallagher Levi. Bette Midler is taking on the famed role in the upcoming revival of “Hello, Dolly!,” about a grumpy bachelor’s matchmaker. Telsey + Company is sifting through potential actors for the remaining roles. The show will begin previews March 13, 2017, ahead of an April 20 opening in a yet-to-be-named theater on Broadway. Jerry Zaks will direct the musical that is set to begin rehearsals later this year.

Happy Birthday, Carol Channing

Broadway legend Carol Channing could’ve been knocked out during a knock-out performance of Hello, Dolly! on tour. It was one of the most memorable nights of theater I’ve ever experienced. It was also a memorable week because I got to interview her in her dressing room.
