More about Hello, Dolly!
Hello, Dolly! is a musical based on Thornton Wilder’s 1938 farce, The Merchant of Yonkers, which in turn was adapted from an 1835 English play, A Day Well Spent by John Oxenford. It was later revised and retitled as The Matchmaker in 1955 before becoming Hello, Dolly! on Broadway in 1964.
When Hello, Dolly! was first released, it won a record 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It held the record for a total of 37 years. In addition, in 1964 the musical was the longest running production in the history of Broadway musicals at the time. In 1969 was made into a film that was then nominated for seven Academy Awards. The show has been revised repeatedly worldwide, and is still sought after today.
Hello, Dolly! tells the story of Dolly Gallagher Levi, a widow living in 1890s New York. She spends her time matchmaking wealthy clients. But when one client, the grumpy Horace Vandergelder, comes to her for help, Dolly resolves to marry him herself.
Dolly travels to New York with Vandergelder while Vandergelder’s two clerks, Barnaby and Cornelius, wind up deciding to spend the day in the city themselves. The group winds up in a series of matchmaking snafus that eventually wind up in a happy ending.
The latest revival of Hello, Dolly! is being staged in New York with Bette Midler playing the role of Dolly. Midler is returning to Broadway for the first time since 2013, at the age of 70. In just the first 24 hours after tickets went live for this latest revival, more than $9 million was spent, breaking all previously Broadway records for first-day tickets sales.
