Tickets for Imelda Staunton in Hello, Dolly! now on sale
Based on Thornton Wilder's 1954 play The Matchmaker, Hello, Dolly! follows the famous matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi as she travels to Yonkers, New York to help a wealthy suitor find love, coming to the conclusion that the next match she needs to make is for herself.
The musical features a book by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman, with songs include "Elegance", "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" and "Before The Parade Passes By".
Imelda Staunton will return to the West End as the show's titular character. Staunton currently holds the record for the most Olivier Award wins in the best actress in a musical category for her performances in Sweeney Todd, Gypsy and Into the Woods.
The production will reunite Staunton with Dominic Cooke who will direct Hello, Dolly!, with the pair previously working together on the National Theatre's Olivier Award-winning revival of Follies.
Hello, Dolly! tickets are now on sale.
