Dolly Levi, the irrepressible matchmaker from Yonkers, New York, has an idea for the perfect match – the tight-fisted, local merchant Horace Vandergelder and herself!
Dolly Levi has been played by a bevy of stars, from Carol Channing to Bette Midler. Now Marina Prior takes on the title role. Marina’s real-life husband Grant Piro, who last starred with Marina in the Production Company’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, returns to play Horace Vandergelder.
Verity Hunt-Ballard (Guys & Dolls, Mary Poppins) stars as Irene Molloy with Glenn Hill (Show Boat) as Cornelius Hackl and Baylie Carson – who starred as young Mary O’Brien in Dusty – as Ermengarde. Also starring Nigel Huckle as Barnaby Tucker, Imogen Moore as Minnie Fay and Jack Van Staveren as Ambrose Kemper.
The superb score by Jerry Herman includes the smash hits Hello, Dolly!, Put on Your Sunday Clothes and It Only Takes a Moment.
