Hello, Dolly! heads out on tour
The darling of Broadway has returned! Following on from a successful revival, this glorious new production of Hello, Dolly! is heading out on a national tour, due to hit stages during the 2018/19 season.
With four 2017 Tony Awards under its belt, including Best Revival and Best Actress for Bette Midler, Jerry Herman's musical comedy is truly back where it belongs. Featuring memorable classics such as 'Before the Parade Passes By' and 'Put on Your Sunday Clothes' Hello, Dolly! is ready to reclaim the hearts of the American people.
Based on Thornton Wilder's play The Matchmaker Hello, Dolly! was an instant success when it first debuted in 1964. Winning an unprecedented 10 Tonys at that year's ceremony it was soon adapted for the big screen featuring a cast led by Barbra Streisand and a young Michael Crawford. This 2017 revival is directed by four time Tony winner Jerry Zaks (Sister Act) whose talent has brought Hello, Dolly! back into the lime light.
