About

Based on Thornton Wilder's "The Matchmaker," this classic musical includes the songs "Before the Parade Passes By," "It Only Takes a Moment," and the title song.

*Through January 9, 2018, Tuesday evening performances feature Bette Midler's alternate, Tony Award-winning actress Donna Murphy in the role of Dolly Gallagher Levi.*

JERRY HERMAN – Music & Lyrics
Jerry Herman remains one of the most iconic and beloved composers in the American theatre. His legendary scores have spawned such standards as “I Am What I Am,” “The Best of Times,” “Mame,” “If He Walked Into My Life,” “We Need a Little Christmas,” and “Hello, Dolly!” His first Broadway musical, Milk and Honey (1961), ran for 543 performances. He made history in 1964 with Hello, Dolly! (ten Tony Awards® including Best Musical, a Broadway record held for 37 years), which was followed by yet another smash, Mame, in 1966. With Dolly! and Mame still running, Herman had the rare distinction of having three Broadway shows playing simultaneously when Dear World opened in 1969. In 1974, Mack & Mabel opened (and remains one of his best-loved scores), and was followed by 1979’s The Grand Tour. Herman’s most recent Broadway show, La Cage aux Folles, became another phenomenon, winning the Tony award® in 1984 for Best Musical. It was successfully revived in 2004 and 2010, winning the Tony® for Best Revival each time. Two of Herman’s most cherished songs from Hello, Dolly! are the emotional highlights of the Disney-Pixar classic Wall-E, cementing Herman’s place in American popular culture. His countless awards and honors include multiple Tony Awards®, Grammys®, Olivier Awards, Drama Desk Awards, the Johnny Mercer Award, the Richard Rodgers Award, the Oscar Hammerstein Award, the Frederick Loewe Award, membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Theater Hall of Fame, and most recently, The Kennedy Center Honor.

MICHAEL STEWART - Book
Michael Stewart was still relatively early in his theatrical career when he had his first smash hit in 1960 with Bye Bye Birdie, for which he won the Tony Award® for Best Book. His subsequent Broadway shows include Carnival! (Drama Critics Circle Award); Hello, Dolly! (Tony Award®, Drama Critics Circle Award); George M! (with Francine and John Pascal); Mack & Mabel (Tony nomination®); The Grand Tour; 42nd Street (with Mark Bramble; Tony®) and Harrigan and Hart (Tony nomination®). He is also the lyricist of Barnum (music by Cy Coleman; Tony nomination®) and I Love My Wife (Tony nomination®). Mr. Stewart died in 1987.
