Broadway in Chicago presents HELLO, DOLLY Review: An All-Around Stunning Production of a Classic Musical
Broadway in Chicago presents Hello, Dolly:
With book by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman, Hello, Dolly takes place at the turn of the 20th century, and follows Dolly Gallagher Levi (Betty Buckley, with a stunning vibrato), a self-proclaimed matchmaker who cannot help but meddle in the affairs of others. She sets out on a trip to Yonkers to help Ambrose Kemper (Garett Hawe) and Ermengarde (Morgan Kirner) convince the half-a-millionaire Horace Vandergelder (Lewis J. Staldin, with good humor), Ermengrade’s uncle, that they should get married. However, as with any classic musical about love, nothing is ever simple.
