Hello, Dolly! New York TicketsAudiences have been captivated by Hello, Dolly!, an award-winning musical, since it first took to the stage in 1964. The show has already racked up thousands of fans worldwide and is still going strong. With catchy tunes and witty dialogue, it’s no wonder this fabulous show broke a record when it first debuted on Broadway, winning 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Since then, Hello, Dolly! has been revived several times. Its most recent Broadway production was staged at the Shubert Theatre. In this staging, Dolly was played by the one and only Bette Midler. Audiences were mesmerized by her portrayal of the eponymous matchmaker who travels to Yonkers, New York, to find a match for the cheap "half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder.
From an English Play to an American MusicalWhile the story was written by Michael Stewart, Jerry Herman wrote the music and lyrics. The plot of Hello, Dolly! was based on the 1835 English play A Day Well Spent by John Oxenford. From the very start, Hello, Dolly! got great reviews not only from fans but also from critics who helped turn the show into a big hit. Hello, Dolly! has sprung back to life many times since it began on Broadway. In the US, the musical was revived in 1975, 1978, 1995 and 2017.
