Surely you'd concede, though, that the reason people are paying ridiculously astronomical prices for Bette Midler performances of "Hello Dolly" (and somewhat less ridiculously astronomical prices for Donna Murphy performances), is BECAUSE of the Bette Factor - because of her bringing her own personal brand (which includes the adlibbing, which is only gratuitous if you don't like it - as you are, of course, thoroughly welcome to do).

And if you happen to prefer Donna Murphy, you can at least be grateful that there is a high-grossing star in the role most of the time that is subsidising Donna Murphy getting to do the show. Because it's pretty unlikely that a Broadway production at this scale with Donna would ever have happened otherwise.
