Hello, Dolly! Tell the Story of a Matchmaker In Love—It Is a Darling Concept for a Memorable Play
After breaking box office records week after week and receiving unanimous raves on Broadway, Hello, Dolly! is now touring America, paying tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion – hailed both then and now as one of the greatest musicals in musical theater history.
Join the Hobby Center from January 7th to 12th, as Hello, Dolly! comes to Houston! This 1964 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical is based on Thornton Wilder’s 1955 play “The Matchmaker” and is the basis for the 1969 film directed by Gene Kelly and starring Barbra Streisand, Walter Matthau, and Michael Crawford.
Dolly, the famed New York City matchmaker, receives her toughest challenge yet when rich grump Horace seeks a suitable wife. She successfully matches many others in the city, including Horace’s niece and two clerks, but everything seems to go wrong when it comes to matching Horace. Dolly finally realizes that maybe she’d like to marry Horace herself, but only if her late husband will send her a sign - and if Horace himself will have her.
Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, Hello, Dolly! is the universally acclaimed smash that NPR calls “the best show of the year!” and the Los Angeles Times says “distills the mood-elevating properties of the American musical at its giddy best.”
Hello, Dolly! features Broadway classics like “Before the Parade Passes By,” “It Only Takes a Moment,” “Put on Your Sunday Clothes,” and, of course, the title number, “Hello, Dolly!” Tickets start at $46.00 and are available at www.ticketmaster.com.
