"I'd like to thank all the Tony voters, many of whom I've actually dated", Midler cracked.
The play, which garnered a total of seven Tony nominations, also saw Michael Aronov win the Tony Award for featured actor in a play.
Rolling Stone critic Peter Travers wrote in his Hello Dolly review, "Midler brings all her gifts - showgirl, chanteuse, clown and heartbreaker".
"Am I dreaming? Is this some kind of insane dream?" she asked.
"Hello, Dolly!" won the award for best revival of a musical.
"It's been a great year for revivals in general - especially that one they've revived in Washington D.C". "It started off-Broadway in the Eighties".
