Thornton Wilder’s classic farce The Matchmaker is transformed into
Jerry Herman’s brassy Broadway musical Hello Dolly.   

Carol Channing, along with a parade of great leading ladies, descended the stairs as Dolly Levi returned to the Harmonia Gardens in one of Broadway’s most lavish and awarded musicals of all time.

Join Wade Russo, assistant conductor at the Goodspeed Opera House in a discussion of how Jerry Herman, Michael Stewart and Gower Champion adapted Wilder’s play into the iconic musical now playing at Goodspeed.

Join us for food and beverages in the garden.
Indoors if inclement weather
