About Hello, Dolly!

Don’t miss Imelda Staunton’s long-awaited return to the stage in the revival of Hello, Dolly!. Book Hello, Dolly! tickets in the West End on London Theatre.

Hello, Dolly! is a timeless Broadway classic that follows the adventures of the irrepressible matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi, with a knack for orchestrating love in 19th-century New York. When she decides it's high time to find a match for herself, chaos and hilarity ensue.

Multi-award-winning Imelda Staunton has earned critical acclaim for her performances both on screen and on stage. Her stage work, including roles in productions like Gypsy and Sweeney Todd, for which she won Olivier Awards. Staunton is known on screen for her memorable portrayals, including Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter series and Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s The Crown.

Hello, Dolly! dates back to John Oxenford's 1935 play A Day Well Spent. Its journey includes adaptations like an 1842 German musical and Thornton Wilder's farcical play The Merchant of Yonkers. Despite initial challenges, Wilder's revised version, titled The Matchmaker, became a Broadway sensation.

The musical, crafted by Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart, underwent title changes before settling on Hello, Dolly! During its original Broadway run, it achieved remarkable success, running for 2,844 performances and securing a then record-breaking 10 Tony Awards. The timeless score by Herman and Stewart includes classics like “Hello, Dolly!”, “It Only Takes a Moment,” “Elegance,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Ribbons Down My Back,” and “Put On Your Sunday Clothes.”

Lush, Actually funny, Beautiful

See it if you’re looking for a classic, large-scale musical

Don’t see it if you’re against Dolly being a heartfelt, twinkling character, and not an over the top oaf

See it if you love great singing & staging with a big dollop of romance & heaps of fun. Also if you want to see an on-stage steam train & trolley bus

Don’t see it if you're allergic to dancing waiters, lobsters (cooked) being used as a weapon in a polka competition riot, hate happy endings and romance

See it if you like CLASS! This show was a triple thread - choreographed comedy, delicate dancing and sumptuous singing. A great summer spectacular

Don’t see it if you don't like a marshmallow musical - a traditional, jolly and very light and breezy musical. My audience connected with the show.

See it if Imelda Staunton is just captivating. Just a wonderful performance. A really strong cast and production as well. Was so lovely.

Don’t see it if I'm not a fan of old school musicals, but I still absolutely loved this.
