Hello, Dolly!
opened on Broadway in 1964 and immediately took the Theatre world by storm, winning 10 Tony awards - a record which still stands - and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for “Best Musical”. It ran continuously for just under seven years - 2,844 performances.

Hello, Dolly! is the story of Dolly Levi the matchmaker, her schemes to snare the well-known miser and half-a-millionaire Horace Vandergelder, and the unlikely couples she also matches up along the way. Dolly is an exuberant busybody who has an answer for everything and can’t help but get involved in other people’s business. “And what do you do for a living, Mrs Levi?” “Some people paint, some sew ... I meddle,” replies Dolly.

When Dolly Levi makes up her mind, she’s unstoppable, and so is “Hello, Dolly! ” You’re bound to enjoy this great musical from one of America’s greatest songwriters, Jerry Herman, featuring eccentric characters, dancing waiters, a happy ending and a host of terrific songs including:

It Takes A Woman • Before The Parade Passes By
Put On Your Sunday Clothes • Hello, Dolly!
