Lush, Actually funny, Beautiful

See it if you’re looking for a classic, large-scale musical

Don’t see it if you’re against Dolly being a heartfelt, twinkling character, and not an over the top oaf

Absorbing, Great singing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you love great singing & staging with a big dollop of romance & heaps of fun. Also if you want to see an on-stage steam train & trolley bus

Don’t see it if you're allergic to dancing waiters, lobsters (cooked) being used as a weapon in a polka competition riot, hate happy endings and romance

See it if Imelda Staunton is just captivating. Just a wonderful performance. A really strong cast and production as well. Was so lovely.

Don’t see it if I'm not a fan of old school musicals, but I still absolutely loved this.

See it if you like CLASS! This show was a triple thread - choreographed comedy, delicate dancing and sumptuous singing. A great summer spectacular

Don’t see it if you don't like a marshmallow musical - a traditional, jolly and very light and breezy musical. My audience connected with the show.

More information about Hello, Dolly!

Hello, Dolly! is based on John Oxenford's 1935 play A Day Well Spent. This story has had various other adaptations, including an 1842 German musical and Thornton Wilder's farcical play The Merchant of Yonkers. After initial challenges, Wilder's revised version, titled The Matchmaker, became a Broadway hit.

The musical, written by Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart, underwent several title changes before settling on Hello, Dolly! During its original Broadway run, it achieved remarkable success, running for 2,844 performances and winning a then record-breaking 10 Tony Awards. Herman and Stewart’s timeless score includes “Put On Your Sunday Clothes”, “Ribbons Down My Back”, “Before the Parade Passes By”, “Elegance”, “It Only Takes a Moment” and, of course, “Hello, Dolly!”.
