Overview

Back on Broadway where she belongs, Bette Midler stars in this 2017 revival of Jerry Herman's "Hello, Dolly!," and joins the impressive line of performers who have made the part their own. Mary Martin, Pearl Bailey, Ethel Merman, Ginger Rogers, and Barbra Streisand are among the most celebrated stars of this musical, which opened in 1964 with Carol Channing playing Dolly Gallagher Levi, a fin de siècle New York society lady and matchmaker. Midler easily withstands all comparisons with her predecessors and puts her own stamp on her part with her brassy persona and instantly recognizable voice. Joined by David Hyde Pierce as the "well-known, unmarried, half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder, and leading a cast that includes Gavin Creel as Cornelius Hackl, Kate Baldwin as Irene Molloy, and Taylor Trensch as Barnaby Tucker, Midler and her colleagues are confident and engaging as they tread the boards, and clearly deserve their ten Tony Award nominations. Directed by Jerry Zaks, with fresh orchestrations by Larry Hochman, and musical direction by Andy Einhorn, this presentation of "Hello, Dolly!" has the appropriate period feeling and quaint New York charm that have kept this old-fashioned musical fresh for more than half a century. The recorded sound is flawless and captures the voices and orchestra with credible front-row presence.

I bought this CD today and I already had the original cast but the 1994 cast was even better. The sound quality was excellent and Carol Channing was AWESOME she's still had it 30 years later. This album was INCREDIBLE. The music was brighter and everything you could ever want out of "Hello Dolly". "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" was amazing . Check out this cd. I hope Dolly comes back soon.

I enjoy new recordings with today's technology, the orchestrations have never sounded better for this great musical. Add Bette Midler and you never stop smiling.David Hyde Pierce and Kate Baldwin are spectacular. It's so hard to get a ticket to see Hello Dolly live, but thank goodness I can listen to this album. I play this album at work in the background and every time Put On Your Sunday Clothes comes I get chills.
