Rob Shuter reports…. Bette Midler is back on Broadway in “Hello, Dolly!” — but her return didn’t come cheap!

“Bette is getting $200,000 a week and 10 percent off the top of the gross, plus a cut of the merchandise sales,” a theater insider told The National ENQUIRER.

“She’ll be the highest paid actress on Broadway — and worth every penny.”

The insider explained: “When Bette was in the show, it grossed over $2 million a week.

“When she left, that number dropped below $1 million.”

No wonder Bette is back!
