The actor will join previously announced star Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly! on Broadway, producer Scott Rudin announced Tuesday. The revival will begin performances on March 13, 2017, and officially open April 20 at the Shubert Theatre.

Four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks will direct the Broadway revival of the beloved musical, which features a score by Jerry Herman and book by Michael Stewart.
