A meddlesome matchmaker brings together the young clerk of a wealthy Yonkers merchant and his assistant with a widowed milliner and her assistant, while making sure she herself gets to marry the merchant, in Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart’s musical adaptation of Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker.
Bernadette Peters has taken up the torch from Bette Middler and is now starring as Dolly Gallagher Levi in Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart’s masterpiece Hello, Dolly! This new revival, the first new production of this classic musical to appear on Broadway since the original, features direction by Tony-winner Jerry Zaks and choreography by Tony-winner Warren Carlyle, but also pays tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion, which has been hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theatre history. The star-studded cast includes Victor Garber, Gavin Creel, Kate Baldwin, Charlie Stemp, Will Burton, Melanie Moore and Jennifer Simard.
