About the Hello, Dolly! musical

Created by Jerry Herman (La Cage aux Folles) and Michael Stewart (42nd Street), the piece is based on Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker and made its world premiere on Broadway 50 years ago. The plot of Hello, Dolly! follows socialite Dolly, who attempts to find her own match made in heaven after spending a lot of time and energy helping others find love.

Hello, Dolly! musical songs

The Hello, Dolly! musical features such toe-tapping musical numbers as "It Only Takes a Moment", "Elegance", "Put On Your Sunday Clothes", "Before the Parade Passes By", "Ribbons Down My Back" and of course "Hello, Dolly!".

The Adelphi Theatre production saw Dominic Cooke reunite with Imelda Staunton following the success of their National Theatre production of Follies (2017). Details on the newly rescheduled production  which will definitely still run  are to be announced at a later date.
