One of the most enduring Broadway classics of all time, Hello, Dolly! starring Sally Struthers, is set to arrive at the Fox Theatre for two performances only on Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19 as part of the Fifth Third Bank Fox Theatre Series.
Two-time Emmy 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 Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Mame and Hello, Dolly!.
With an irresistible story and an unforgettable score including the title song, "Put on Your Sunday Clothes," "It Only Takes a Moment," and the show-stopping "Before the Parade Passes By," Hello, Dolly! has been charming audiences around the world for 50 years.
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. Having premiered on Broadway in 1964, the show has since enjoyed three Broadway revivals and international success, as well as a film adaptation that was nominated for seven Academy Awards in 1969.
Hello, Dolly! starring Sally Struthers is directed by Jeffrey B. Moss, with choreography by Bob Richard, Scenic Design by Randel Wright, Lighting Design by Charlie Morrison, and Musical supervision by Skip Brevis. The Executive Producer is Daniel Sher.
The brand new dazzling production starring Sally Struthers is not be missed, as she reprises the role that led The Florida Times – Union to rave "Sally Struthers shines in 'Hello, Dolly!'. She is a force of nature and charms a lot!"
