A Good Bette
A couple of days ago Bette Midler made her return to Broadway, starring in a new revival of the Tony-winning Best Musical Hello, Dolly! It got pretty good reviews, and is expected to do quite well -- though that has zero to do with the review: after the show was announced, it built up pre-Broadway sales of $40 million.. Co-starring as Horace Vandergelder ("the well-known half-a-millionaire") is Tony-winner and former co-star of Frasier, David Hyde Pierce.
I haven't been able to track down any videos of the show yet, but this will have to do. It's the curtain call on opening night, which has an amusing bit with Ms. Midler at the end.
I'm going to include two versions. The second is much better quality and a superior angle but short, so it misses most of the lead-in. That below has all that, so we're going with it first. (David Hyde Piece, by the way, is the fellow in dark gray with the bushy mustache and overly-thick hair. Bette Midler is...well, you'll figure it out.)
And here then is the far-better quality and much-better angle. It looks to be professionally done, so I suspect it's from the production itself --
