This musical adaptation of Thornton Wilder’s hit play The Matchmaker bursts with humor, romance, energetic dance, and some of the greatest songs in musical theatre history. The romantic and comic exploits of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and “woman who arranges things,” are certain to thrill and entertain audiences again and again.
Hello, Dolly! premiered on Broadway on January 16, 1964 at the St. James Theatre. Opening with Carol Channing in the title role, the show ultimately played for 2,844 performances, making it—at the time—the longest-running Broadway musical in history. The West End production ran for 794 performances at London’s Drury Lane Theatre.The musical has been revived several times on Broadway, most recently in 2017, starring Bette Midler as Dolly Levi.
