NEW YORK (AP) - Former “Frasier” star David Hyde Pierce will play opposite Bette Midler in the upcoming Broadway revival of “Hello, Dolly!”

The musical tells the story of matchmaker and schemer Dolly Levi who receives her toughest challenge yet when a rich grump seeks a suitable wife. It’s a musical version of Thornton Wilder’s play “The Matchmaker.”

The show features a rousing score by Jerry Herman that’s bursting with joy and tunes like “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” ”Before the Parade Passes By” and “It Only Takes a Moment.”

Pierce was last on Broadway directing the romantic comedy musical “It Shoulda Been You.”

Performances on Broadway begin on March 13, 2017, with an official opening night of April 20, 2017.
