Hello, Dolly! tells the story of the vivacious Dolly Gallagher Levi, one of the iconic characters of the American musical theater canon. Dolly is a matchmaker who has been hired to arrange a marriage for the widowed half-millionaire Horace Vandergelder. Dolly, however, has secret plans for Vandergelder and herself. With a cast of delightful leading characters, beautiful turn-of-the-century costumes and a fabulous chorus, Hello, Dolly! is also brimming with joyful tunes, including the title song, "Put on Your Sunday Clothes" and "It Only Takes a Moment."

I liked the production but the idea that these two people were poison for each other really didn't come through very well. I never saw the movie version but I have seen Streisand sing "People" and this actress could really belt out the songs, very similar to Streisand.
Funny Girl is a musical with a book by Isobel Lennart, music by Jule Styne, and lyrics by Bob Merrill. The semi-biographical plot is based on the life and career of Broadway, film star and comedienne Fanny Brice and her stormy relationship with entrepreneur and gambler Nicky Arnstein.
The musical was produced by Ray Stark, who was Brice's son-in-law via his marriage to her daughter Frances, and starred Barbra Streisand. The production was nominated for eight Tony Awards but, facing tough competition from Hello, Dolly!, it failed to win in any categories.
