About the Play
Hello, Dolly! recounts the tale of Dolly Gallagher Levi, a refined matchmaker who has been hired to arrange yet another marriage in 1890s New York. But this time, she’s in business for herself. Employing a host of other talents—like corset re-boning, ear piercing, and dance instructing—Dolly attempts to win over her unsuspecting husband-to-be. This is an irresistible story about the joy of living, glittering with happy songs, shining with loving scenes, alive with the personality of one of the most fabulous characters on the musical stage—Dolly Gallagher Levi.
