I firmly believe Murphy was brought in not so there would be 8 performances a week, but moreso for Murphy to fill in for Midler's 4 weeks of vacation.

A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Interesting that the writer reports that 3 of the 4 best musical nominees are having a benefit performance, and then he moves on to Dolly.  Dolly is not one of the nominees-- there was no mention of The Great Comet, which seemingly is not doing a benefit performance. He should have clarified that this was a REVIVAL.  Although all of us know this, it's misleading making it sound like Dolly is the only show not giving such a performance.

Bernadette Peters went in as a replacement for Catherine Zeta Jones in A Little Night Music a few years back didn't she?

Someone posted on here that he had a friend who was friends with Bernadette and that she had been asked to take over for Dolly. Have no idea if it's true, but she'd be a fantastic Dolly

I wonder if they're going to look into pop stars to replace Bette. Dolly Levi is supposed to be older but she doesn't have to be a woman in her 60s-70s.

I don't think they will do a special performance with Bette - which would undoubtedly raise a lot of money for The Actors Fund. If they try to do one with Donna - it won't make a lot. And I highly doubt Scott Rudin will donate the proceeds from one of the performances in lieu of an extra performance. All of this is sad - special performances are the best!
