Hello, Dolly! Is coming to the Kravis Center from December 11, 2018 – December 16, 2018.
Hello, Dolly! Is a Broadway musical, first produced in 1964, which follows the story of Dolly Gallagher Levi (a strong-willed matchmaker), as she travels to Yonkers, New York, to find a match for the miserly "well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder. In doing so she persuades his niece, his niece's intended, and Horace's two clerks to travel to New York City.
Over the years the show has become one of the most enduring musical theatre hits, with four Broadway revivals and international success. It was also made into the 1969 film Hello Dolly! that was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won three.
The current version of the show is staring Tony Award®-winning Broadway legend Betty Buckley, and it pays tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion – hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history.
Betty Lynn Buckley is an American actress and singer. She won the 1983 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as Grizabella in the original Broadway production of Cats.
