Imelda is London's newest matchmakerImelda Staunton returns to the West End in Hello, Dolly! at the Adelphi Theatre. The Olivier Award winner meddles and schemes her way to the top in this glitzy revival of a well-loved classic.
New York socialite Dolly Levi has made a nice business out of matchmaking for high-class clients, including almost-millionaire Horace Vandergelde, Horace’s niece, and widow Irene Molloy. But this shrewd schemer is always on the hunt for new opportunities, and soon sets out to secure her own happy (and favourable) engagement.
With a timeless score from Jerry Hyman, including “Elegance” and “It Takes a Woman”, Hello, Dolly! is a brilliantly feel-good musical from the creatives behind Mame and 42nd Street.
Imelda Staunton stars as Dolly Levi. She is a four-time Olivier Award winner for shows including Sweeney Todd and Gypsy. Staunton is joined by Tony Award nominee Jenna Russell (Fun Home) as Irene Molloy and Andy Nyman (Ghost Stories) as Horace Vandergelder.
Big tunes and a casting match made in heaven: set a date with Hello Dolly tickets when the musical opens at the Adelphi Theatre.
