Hello, Dolly opened at the St. James Theatre on Broadway on January 16, 1964, and became an instant success.
Based on Thornton Wilder’s play The Matchmaker, the show tells the story of widowed Dolly Gallagher Levi who is determined to find a new wife for Horace Vandergelder, the well known half-a-millionaire. In the process Dolly helps romance blossom for several couples and allows herself to stop mourning her late husband and re-enter the world of the living.
Set in New York City and Yonkers, NY, in the 1890s, Hello, Dolly! is an audience favorite.
Below are photos from the show, taken by Kelly LeVea (except the seniors photo, by Ken McCann):
