Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Actress in a Musical (Bette Midler) for the recent Broadway show at the Schubert Theatre, Hello, Dolly! has been enthralling audiences for over 50 years.
Hello, Dolly! offers classic musical theatre without a hint of apology. It bursts with humour, romance and is boisterous and charming from start to finish.
In 1890s New York City, the bold and enchanting widow, Dolly Levi (who has been played by a bevy of stars from Carol Channing to Barbra Streisand to Bette Midler) is a socialite-turned-matchmaker.
Her latest client seeking assistance is the cantankerous Yonkers “half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder. Dolly’s scheming soon chaotically involves Horace’s employees, Cornelius and Barnaby, as well as a New York hat maker, Irene Molloy and her assistant Minnie Fay, as Dolly tries to cover up her own secret romantic designs.
