Bernadette Peters, Victor Garber to Star in Broadway’s ‘Hello, Dolly!’ Revival
Producer Scott Rudin announced today that four-time Tony Award® nominee and six-time Emmy Award® nominee Victor Garber will return to Broadway in the role of Horace Vandergelder, opposite Bernadette Peters, in the hottest production of the year: Michael Stewart and Jerry Herman’s beloved musical Hello, Dolly!.
Mr. Garber will begin performances on Saturday evening, January 20, 2018, prior to an official Thursday, February 22 opening. David Hyde Pierce, who received Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations in the role, plays his final performance on Sunday, January 14. A new block of tickets are on sale, via Telecharge.com and Shubert Theatre box office.
Hello, Dolly! marks Mr. Garber’s first Broadway musical appearance since his devilish turn in the 1994 revival of Damn Yankees, for which he received a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical. He also appeared on Broadway in the original productions of Arcadia, the Tony Award-winning Best Play, Art, Noises Off, Deathtrap, and the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Sweeney Todd. He starred in the world premiere of Assassins and the City Center Encores! production of Follies.
On television, Mr. Garber received three Emmy nominations for the spy drama “Alias,” as well as nominations for “Frasier,” “Will & Grace,” and “Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows.”
