In 1890 New York, Dolly Levi is the woman to see for just about anything. Need a husband? No problem for Dolly. Can’t dance? In five minutes you’ll be waltzing. Dolly has the world wrapped around her little finger and there isn’t anything, or anyone she can’t conquer, so when she sets her sights on the wealthy and pernickety Horace Vandergelder, it’s only a matter of time.
Dolly convinces Horace and his employees, Cornelius and Barnaby as well as Horace’s niece Ermengarde to travel to New York where they meet a Yonkers hat maker named Irene Molloy, and her assistant Minnie Fay. Dolly’s romantic scheming does not go completely to plan, but eventually, after an extraordinary evening at the Harmonia Gardens Restaurant, everyone ends up with the right partner! This award winning musical is based on Thornton Wilder’s play ‘The Matchmaker’.
