Hello Dolly Happy Birthday To The Divine Ms. M

Following the bows, the cast of the reigning Tony Award®-winner for Best Musical Revival led the audience in an impromptu rendition of “Happy Birthday.” Cast members then brought out champagne and a gigantic birthday cake to toast Ms. Midler. The custom cake was decorated with the album cover artwork of The New Broadway Cast Recording of Hello, Dolly!, which recently received a 2017 Grammy® Award nomination for Best Musical Theater Album.
