What is Hello, Dolly! about?

Dolly Levi is a vibrant matchmaker living in 19th-century New York City. One day, Dolly is tasked with finding a suitable wife for the wealthy and grumpy half-a-millionaire Horace Vandergelder, but Dolly has an ulterior motive under her sleeve - she’d love to have Horace all to herself! Dolly’s pursuit of romance is about to take her on an adventure all across New York City.

A Brief History

Hello, Dolly! has had a long history. The story began in John Oxenford’s 1935 A Day Well Spent, which was adapted into an 1842 German musical, Einen Jux will er sich machen, which in turn was adapted into a farcical play by Thornton Wilder nearly a century later titled The Merchant of Yonkers. The play was a box office bomb, so Wilder revised it and switched the The Matchmaker, and finally, the story became a hit. 

The Matchmaker was shortly adapted into a Broadway musical. Its original titles were Dolly, A Damned Exasperating Woman and Call on Dolly before finally being known as Hello, Dolly!. Hello, Dolly!, written by Jerry Herman (music and lyrics) and Michael Stewart became one of the most popular musicals of the decade, having run for a total of 2,844 performances, with the original production having won a then record-breaking 10 Tony Awards out of 11 nominations (a record that was held for 37 years).

Did You Know

  • The show album cast recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. 
  • The film adaption of Hello Dolly premiered in 1969 starring Barbara Streisand and directed by Gene Kelly. The movie received seven Oscar nominations and won three.
  • Two songs from Hello, Dolly! are featured in the Disney/Pixar movie "Wall-E". ("Put on Your Sunday Clothes" and "It Only Takes a Moment")
  • On December 2, 1965, almost two years after the Broadway premiere, Hello Dolly opened on the West End. The show ran for 794 performances at the Theatre Royal, Durrell Lane. Since then, Hello Dolly has been revived three times on the West End. 
  • The story was originally about Horace. Whilst Hello, Dolly! features Dolly in search of love as the protagonist, the story it was adapted from (The Matchmaker) actually features Horace Vandergelder as the unlucky-in-love protagonist!
