Hello, Dolly!, follows New York's favorite, and best matchmaker Dolly Levi. Dolly has her eye on the grumpy and stubborn "well known half a millionaire", Horace Vandergelder, played by David Hyde Pierce. Through a series of well planned mishaps and bump-ins, Dolly arranges everything as it should be, and matches each colorful character with a proper ending. The star-studded and Tony nominated cast includes, Gavin Creel, Kate Baldwin, and David Hyde Pierce.
Hello, Dolly!, the beloved musical based of the Thronton Wilder play The Matchmaker, and adapted by Michael Stewart and Jerry Herman, has been charming audiences since it's original production in 1964. Dolly Levi, played most famously by Carol Channing, Pearl Bailey, Ethel Merman, and Barbra Streisand, calls for a powerful woman to carry the show on her shoulders through comedy, heart-felt monologues, and show-stopping vocals. Dolly is in perfectly capable hands in her current incarnation of Bette Midler. Ms. Midler brings heaps of charm to Dolly's sharp wit and power and has Broadway audiences eating out of her hand with her impeccable comedic timing and iconic vocals. We have been anxiously awaiting the release of the cast album since it's announcement in mid-April.
