About this show

In the Tony-winning musical farce Hello, Dolly!, the cantankerous half-a-millionaire Horace Vandergelder hires matchmaker Dolly Levi to find him a wife. Dolly soon hatches a plan to woo and win Vandergelder's hand herself, while simultaneously arranging romantic prospects for his niece, his clerks and two of Manhattan's most eligible shop girls. Based on Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker, Jerry Herman's memorable score and charming lyrics place the irresistibly mischievous Dolly center stage, making the role one of the most celebrated and high-spirited in musical theatre. Eric Schaffer (Meet John Doe) returns to direct this enduring musical favorite in a co-production with Virginia's Signature Theatre.
