About the show
In 1890s New York City, the bold and enchanting widow Dolly Levi is a socialite-turned-matchmaker. Her latest clients seeking assistance are the self-absorbed "half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder and a young artist named Ambrose who is in love with Horace's niece, Ermengarde. In her quest to find Horace a match and to encourage him to accept Ambrose, Dolly's scheming soon ends up involving Horace's employees as well as New York milliner Irene Molloy, all the while trying to cover up her secret plans for her own future matrimony. With a score full of well-known classics such as “Put On Your Sunday Clothes” and “Before the Parade Passes By”, Hello, Dolly! is a must-watch for any fan of classic musical theatre.
Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Bette Midler stars as Dolly Levi in her first Broadway musical role since 1970. She is joined by David Hyde Pierce – best known for his role in Frasier – as Horace Vandergelder, Kate Baldwin (Finian’s Rainbow) as Irene Molloy, Gavin Creel (Thoroughly Modern Millie) and as Cornelius Hackl, Charlie Stemp (Half A Sixpence) as Barnaby Tucker.
The production is directed by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks, and pays tribute to the original direction and choreography of Gower Champion, whose heading of Hello, Dolly!’s Broadway debut is hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history.
A spectacle like no other, with a score that will stay with you days after you’ve left the theatre, Hello, Dolly! is a classic tale not to be missed.
