Bette Midler Gives Final Bow in Hello, Dolly! to Understudy

Bette Midler in Hello Dolly! Broadway

Bette Midler sure knows how to make an understudy feel appreciated.

Ensemble performer Christian Dante White was unexpectedly called upon to play the role of Cornelius Hackl (which he understudies, but had not yet rehearsed) during two preview performances on Broadway this week and Midler publicly acknowledged his efforts during the curtain calls.

Playbill.com reported that Midler stepped aside to give the actor the final bow in recognition of his work.
