Before there was Match.com, there was Dolly Levi! Broadway’s favorite matchmaker will light up the Quincy Community Theatre stage this summer in the hit musical HELLO, DOLLY!
HELLO, DOLLY! is the beloved musical everyone should experience. It only takes a moment to see how theatre-goers across the world have fallen in love with this classic show. From the very first note, generations have escaped the humdrum to find themselves transported to turn-of-the-century New York for the buzzed about arrival of the main character, Dolly Levi.
Dolly is a widow, a matchmaker and a professional meddler whose charm and antics would melt any heart. When the half-a-millionaire Horace Vandergelder enlists her services to find a wife, Dolly changes the game by deciding that the next match she needs to make is for herself!
This lighthearted and humorous tale makes for the perfect feel–good theatrical experience. Combine it with a sparkling, toe-tapping score and you have one of Broadway’s biggest musical spectaculars. The original production earned a record-setting 10 Tony Awards, more than any other show in history until THE PRODUCERS could surpass its awards total 37 years later.
