Bette Midler is set to return to Broadway in 2017 in a revival of “Hello Dolly!” And the actress/singer is causing a stir lately with some very provocative tweets.

Well Bette Midler would not be Bette Midler if she did not stir things up.

Fellow Jewish diva Barbra Streisand starred opposite Walter Matthau in the 1969 movie version of the musical which won three Oscars.

Directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks, Hello, Dolly! will begin performances at Broadway’s Shubert Theatre (225 West 44th Street) on March 15, 2017.

In recent interview with Time Magazine Bette Midler talked about meeting Carol Channing who originated the role on Broadway. “Even at 75, she was absolutely extraordinary, ” said Midler. “I met her a couple of months ago and fell in love. She’s a real light in the world. It’s very big shoes to fill.”

Midler also talked about the advice she was given by some about taking on the role saying, “Make it your own. That’s what everyone I talked to said. You can’t do somebody else’s version of it. It’s a tall order. It’s wonderfully constructed. It’s this exquisite little jewel box, like a watch–so finely tuned, and every little piece works.”

The revival has already set Broadway box office records before it has even premiered. This is possibly why Bette Midler feels comfortable with tweeting the following comments about people like Blac Chyna and Kellyanne Conway.
