Bette Midler is set to star as Dolly Gallagher in the revival of the 1964 musical. Featuring music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart, Hello, Dolly! tells the story of an outspoken matchmaker and her attempts to marry "half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder. Produced by Scott Rudin, the show has a book by Michael Stewart, based on The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder. It won a then-record 10 Tony Awards in 1964, including Best Musical, and ran 2,844 performances, making it the longest-running musical in Broadway history at the time.
