The Divine Miss...Dolly!

When Bette Midler gets her tease on, she makes good on it.

The Divine Miss M – who is modeling for Marc Jacobs and working on a reunion with her fellow First Wives, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton, for Netflix  is also on her way back to Broadway, where she will take on the role of Dolly Levi in a revival of Hello, Dolly! that will open next year. Midler’s staging will mark the first time in more than half a century that the show has graced the Great White Way.

Film producer Scott Rudin is backing the production, which will be under the direction of four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks.

The entertainer was last on Broadway in 2013, as the star of Ill Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers.

Previews for the new Hello, Dolly! are set to begin in March 2017 for an official curtain later late the following month.
