Iconic musical ‘Dolly’ makes a grand entrance in San Francisco
Everybody’s always happy to see Dolly.
The titular matchmaker and Jill-of-all-trades in “Hello, Dolly!” always makes a big entrance, and people practically swoon all around her. We’ve all heard the song.
Now “Hello, Dolly!” is making a big entrance again in San Francisco, as SHN brings the national tour of the Tony Award-winning 2017 Broadway revival to the Golden Gate Theatre. The timing is poignant, so soon after the death of the original Dolly, San Francisco’s own Carol Channing. This revival originally starred Bette Midler, and the tour brings us Broadway veteran Betty Buckley, star of “Eight Is Enough” and a Tony Award winner for “Cats,” recently seen on TV’s “Supergirl” and “Preacher.”
