Hello, Dolly! Dallas TicketsHello, Dolly! is a fun, family-friendly show featuring music by Jerry Herman and a book (screenplay) by Michael Stewart. The book is based on a 1938 Thornton Wilder farce titled The Merchant of Yonkers, retitled The Matchmaker in 1955. Despite debuting on Broadway more than 50 years ago, Hello, Dolly! remains a favorite of audiences worldwide thanks in part to its legendary title song. The story follows Dorothy Gallagher Levi, a matchmaker who travels to Yonkers to find a wife for the half-a-millionaire Horace Vandegelder. Herman's lively score does ample justice to the sumptuous period costumes and huge wigs that are typical of the Hello, Dolly! tours and productions. The musical's appeal also rests in the larger-than-life charisma of its titular character, a brash, intelligent, independent woman who goes after what she wants. To date, Hello, Dolly! boasts multiple Broadway revivals, a movie adaptation and national as well as international tours. The original Broadway cast recording reached No. 1 on the Billboard album chart and was subsequently inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. Don't miss this chance to get Hello, Dolly!
