Almost everyone is familiar with Louie Armstrong singing “Hello, Dolly!” as he welcomes matchmaker Dolly Levi back
to the Harmonia Gardens. Most shows are lucky to have one song that everyone will leave the show singing. Jerry
Herman has given Hello, Dolly! several showstoppers.
As soon as the curtain goes up, we are introduced to Dolly by the entire cast as they tell us to, “Call on Dolly”
for anything you need. As the opening says, “Here she is! Put on your seatbelts and enjoy the ride!” Next “Put
On Your Sunday Clothes” fills the stage with dancing, singing, and with gorgeous costumes evoking another era.
So much fun you'll want to join them!
Dolly and cast close the first act with “Before the Parade Passes By,” a number that could be the finale of most shows,
but here it just warms us up for what is to come in the second act - and what a second act it is! You'll wish we had
skipped the Intermission.
Hello, Dolly! stands out in the annals of the American Musical Theatre. It can be characterized as the last of the big,
brassy, no-holds-barred, Broadway Musicals. Experience what musical theatre used to be: fun, feisty, fashionable and
fantastic, a great time for the whole family! Put on your Sunday clothes and come join the King of Prussia Players in
the musical celebration of Hello, Dolly!
