“Well, hello, Dolly...
It's so nice to have you back where you belong”


Just in time for the holiday season, the universally-acclaimed Broadway musical, Hello, Dolly! is making its way to Detroit! I admittedly only know the show from the Barbra Streisand big screen rendition, so I’m really excited to see how the story, music, and fanfare translate on stage. If you’re looking for a pre-Christmas activity to enjoy with family and friends, read on for more details.

Hello, Dolly! - Here’s the Hype:

Winner of four Tony Awards (including Best Musical Revival), Hello, Dolly! is the universally-acclaimed show that NPR calls “the best show of the year!” and the Los Angeles Times says “distills the mood-elevating properties of the American musical at its giddy best."

After breaking box office records week after week and receiving unanimous raves on Broadway, Hello, Dolly! is now touring America, paying tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion. Rolling Stone calls it “a must-see event. A musical comedy dream. If you’re lucky enough to score a ticket, you’ll be seeing something historic. Wow, wow, wow, indeed!”

Led by four-time Tony Award-winning director Jerry Zaks and choreographed by Tony Award winner Warren Carlyle, the entire creative team of the Broadway production reprises their roles for the national tour of Hello, Dolly!, including four-time Tony Award winner Santo Loquasto (Scenic & Costume Design), six-time Tony Award winner Natasha Katz (Lighting Design), Tony Award winner Scott Lehrer (Sound Design), Andy Einhorn (Music Supervision), Ben Whiteley (Music Direction), Tony Award winner Larry Hochman (Orchestrations), Tony Award winner Don Pippin (Vocal Arrangements), David Chase (Dance Arrangements), and Telsey + Company (Casting).

Hello, Dolly! began performances on Broadway in March 15, 2017, and officially opened on April 20, 2017. Having broken the record for best first day of ticket sales in Broadway history, the box office record at the Shubert Theatre twelve times, and shattering The Shubert Organization’s all-time record ten times, the production ended its historic Broadway run on August 25, 2018.
