It’s the turn of the century when we meet the bold and beautiful widow Dolly Levi who has found herself in the role of matchmaker. Working to pair her latest client, the miserly half-a-millionaire Horace Vandergelder, with the young Irene Molloy, proves interesting as Dolly finds herself eager to connect with Horace (and Horace’s money).
Sharing the role of icon Dolly Levi is Kathy Hartzog (Driving Miss Daisy, Always Patsy Cline) and Lee Martin (Hairspray, Newsies). She works to unite Horace, played by Bill DeWitt (Arsenic & Old Lace, Greater Tuna) and Chris Kruzner (Driving Miss Daisy, Stand By Your Man), with the lovely Irene, taken by Cortlin Collins (Miracle on 34th Street, The Little Mermaid) and Lisa Akly (A Christmas Carol, Mame). Other familiar faces gracing the stage include Bobby Bullock (Mamma Mia!), Eric Bothur (Mary Poppins), Emily Clelland (The Little Mermaid), Alex Cone (West Side Story), Corey Langley (Beauty and the Beast), Zachary Linick (Big Fish), Grace Sawicki (Newsies) and Leah Tudor (Arsenic & Old Lace).
Dolly last graced the Town stage in 1997, but she’s back for her turn in the 2019 spotlight. So “Put On Your Sunday Clothes” because “It Only Takes a Moment” before the seats will be filled for you to say, “Hello, Dolly!”
