Hello Dolly Back Were She Belongs

Now Playing on Broadway

 

Dolly’s Back at the Shubert Theatre, starring Bette Milder and David Hyde Pierce  previews from 15th March 2017, Opening Night 20th April the last production of Hello Dolly on Broadway was in 1995 with the original dolly Carol Channing. The musical was filmed Twentieth-Century Fox with Barbra Streisand and Walter Matthau in 1968 to great success.
Hello, Dolly! is a musical with lyrics and music by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart, based on Thornton Wilder’s 1938 farce The Merchant of Yonkers, which Wilder revised and retitled The Matchmaker in 1955.

Hello, Dolly! was first produced on Broadway by David Merrick in 1964, winning a record 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, a record held for 37 years. The show album Hello, Dolly! An Original Cast Recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. The album reached number one on the Billboard album chart on June 6, 1964 and was replaced the next week by Louis Armstrong’s album Hello, Dolly! The show has become one of the most enduring musical theatre hits, enjoying three Broadway revivals and international success. It was also made into a 1969 film that was nominated for seven Academy Awards, and won three.

As the 19th becomes the 20th century, all of New York City is excited because widowed but brassy Dolly Gallagher Levi is in town . Dolly makes a living through what she calls “meddling” – matchmaking and numerous sidelines, including dance instruction and mandolin lessons . She is currently seeking a wife for grumpy Horace Vandergelder, the well-known half-a-millionaire, but it becomes clear that Dolly intends to marry Horace herself. Ambrose Kemper, a young artist, wants to marry Horace’s weepy niece Ermengarde, but Horace opposes this because Ambrose’s vocation does not guarantee a steady living. Ambrose enlists Dolly’s help, and they travel to Yonkers, New York to visit Horace, who is a prominent citizen there and owns Vandergelder’s Hay and Feed.
