I thought it was great fun for community theatre, and the color was terrific; Miss Dolly was stunning

props to the actors... the direction was misguided, and the design left much to be desired (especially costumes)

Description

By Michael Stewart

Music & Lyrics by Jerry Herman

Based on The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder

Directed by Richard Repetta

This musical adaption of Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker has won multiple Tony awards and is widely regarded as one of Broadway’s most enduring hits. Crafty, meddling Dolly Gallagher Levi is charged with finding a suitable wife for the upright, respectable Horace Vandergelder. But she quickly decides to take matters into her own hands and keep him for herself, and Dolly sets out to scheme and sing her way into Horace’s hard heart all over New York.
