Two-time Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Sally Struthers stars as the strong-willed matchmaker Dolly, who travels to Yonkers, New York, to find a match for the ornery “well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder.
Best known for her work as Gloria in the legendary television series All in the Family and more recently as Babette on Gilmore Girls, Struthers’ career has spanned four decades. In addition to her ubiquitous TV career, she has sparkled on the musical theater stage nationwide with featured roles in Broadway productions of Annie, Grease and The Odd Couple, and regionally in The Full Monty, Mame, Legally Blonde and Chicago.
With an irresistible story and an unforgettable score including classics such as, “Hello Dolly!”, “Put on Your Sunday Clothes,” “It Only Takes a Moment,” and the show-stopping “Before the Parade Passes By,” “Hello Dolly!” has been delighting audiences around the world since 1964. However, this is the first time for “Hello Dolly!” to be presented at the Lutcher Theater.
Winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Choreography, “Hello Dolly!” features music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart. Since its multi-Tony Award winning Broadway premiere in 1964, the show has had three Broadway revivals and boundless international success, as well as a film adaptation that was nominated for seven Academy Awards in 1969.
