Audiences at the Adelphi Theatre will be treated to a classic musical in 2020 as the iconic Hello, Dolly! makes a welcome return to the West End, this time with the beloved performer Imelda Staunton!
Following the story of matchmaker Dolly Gallagher Levi, the musical has been a popular one since it was debuted to audiences in the 1960s (though it has its origins as a play from the 1930s). It has the popular song Hello, Dolly! as part of its repertoire and features an array of memorable characters. What more could theatregoers want when it comes to a trip to London’s West End?
Dolly loves life and she loves to match people up, but things take another turn with her latest project - to find someone for Horace Vandergelder (Andy Nyman), the rich owner of a Hay & Feed shop. Along the way we meet an array of memorable characters like Irene Molloy (Jenna Russell), Barnaby Tucker, Cornelius Hackl, Minnie Fay, Mrs Rose and Ambrose Kemper, amongst many others.
Then there’s the musical numbers, which include classics like Call On Dolly, Penny In My Pocket, Before The Parade and Put On Your Sunday Clothes, to name but a few.
Imelda Staunton is one of the nation’s most beloved performers, whose work spans the stage and screen. In the West End she has appeared in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at the Harold Pinter Theatre, Good People at the Noel Coward Theatre and Sweeney Todd at the Adelphi Theatre. Her screen work has made her a household name and includes films like Pride, Nanny McPhee and Vera Drake, as well as the Harry Potter films.
Hello, Dolly! runs at the Adelphi Theatre, under the direction of Dominic Cooke, from Thursday 27th August 2020 (previews Tuesday 11st August 2020).
