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 Bette Midler) is a socialite-turned-matchmaker and “woman who arranges things”. Her latest clients seeking assistance are the cantankerous “half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder and a young artist named Ambrose, who is in love with Horace’s niece, Ermengarde. Dolly’s scheming soon involves Horace’s employees as well as a New York hat maker, as she tries to cover up her own secret romantic designs. Hello, Dolly! is an eternal blockbuster Broadway hit which is currently experiencing a Broadway revival to rave reviews, Hello, Dolly! is energetic and filled with charisma and heart.
