The Great American Musical in a Co-Production with Ford’‘s Theatre

One of the greatest musicals ever written, Hello, Dolly! brings to life the tale of Dolly Levi and celebrates the search for love.

In a bold new production, Signature Theatre joins forces with Ford’‘s Theatre to reinterpret this glorious classic tale. Playing matchmaker for herself this time, Dolly woos the impervious Mr. Horace Vandergelder, while also finding mates for two bumbling shopkeepers and persuading Horace to approve his niece‘’s marriage— – all in a day’‘s work! Hello, Dolly! is a delectable treat for the whole family.

Eric Schaeffer directs this classic American musical based on Thornton Wilder‘’s The Matchmaker. Featuring the hit songs ““Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Elegance,”” ““Before the Parade Passes By”” and ““Hello, Dolly!,”” this lush new production –– staged at Ford’‘s Theatre in Washington, DC –– promises to delight!
