“Hello, Dolly!” is a musical comedy dream. It is difficult to describe the emotion it produces.”
—New York Herald Tribune
Winner of Academy Awards and among the most Tony Awards ever received, the funny, sweet and massive Hello, Dolly! is – at last – a Muse Machine production.
Dolly has had a remarkable lineage of performers, including Carol Channing, Barbra Streisand, Louis Armstrong, Bette Midler and a Broadway cast featuring Pearl Bailey, Cab Calloway, Morgan Freeman and Muse Machine’s own Nat Horne! From its early days, the show has been imagined with diversity at its heart (a value shared by Muse Machine).
Even our youngest Musies will know Dolly as the favorite movie of Pixar’s WALL-E, whose mechanical heart learned, “… It only takes a moment to be loved a whole life long.”
Along with that number, Hello, Dolly! is filled with favorite songs and dances, including “Before The Parade Passes By,” “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” and the famous title track. Louis Armstrong’s recording bumped The Beatles from the top of the charts and the soundtrack of the show holds a place in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
The huge production numbers. The humor. The heart. This is going to be quite a show. Take her wrap, fellas…
