About this show

Long before Carol Channing strutted down the steps of the Harmonia Gardens, "Dolly Gallagher Levi" was using her guile to nurture love, spread wealth like manure, and snag a husband for herself. In Wilder's timeless romantic comedy The Matchmaker, mistaken identities, inappropriate hook-ups, and the constraints of class combine to prove that all the money in the world can't buy happiness. But even the smallest dose of Dolly can transform a skinflint into a Romeo and a hapless clerk into the King of Yonkers.
