Bernadette Peters debuts in Hello, Dolly! — first look

Posted on

In one of the most anticipated Broadway casting replacements since the 45th Elphaba, one stage legend is stepping in for another as Bernadette Peters officially takes over the high, high headpieces of Bette Midler in Broadway’s still-hot Hello, Dolly! revival.

A first-look photo has been released as Peters prepares to officially begin performances in the Tony-winning production on Jan. 20 (Midler departed the show earlier this week). With her inheritance of the Dolly Levi mantle, Peters joins a list of former Dollys that includes Donna Murphy, Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Ginger Rogers, Phyllis Diller, and other beloved actresses of the stage.

The cast as it stands now includes original members Gavin Creel, Kate Baldwin, Will Burton, Melanie Moore, Jennifer Simard, and Kevin Ligon; Victor Garber has since stepped into the Horace Vandergelder role played by David Hyde Pierce, with Molly Griggs having taken over Minnie Fay from Lady Bird breakout Beanie Feldstein and Charlie Stemp making his debut as Barnaby Tucker as Taylor Trensch prepares to lead Dear Evan Hansen beginning Feb. 6.

Hello, Dolly! opened at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre on April 20, 2017.
