This is truly a must see! The costumes were very nice, the music was incredible, the actors were fabulous and the story line was so funny! We enjoyed this play so much because it was so uplifting. Loved it.

Very well done, but I just wish there would have been more people in the ensemble. The group numbers just kind of fell flat. Nancy Opel and Edward Gero were quite the pair as Dolly Levi and Horace Vandergelder, respectively. Wade...continued

Absolutely great show! Brought my granddaughter 14, who has a bright singing future, just had a hit show in school. This was a great experience for her, and the cast of Hello Dolly was absolutely superb!

The show is a solid production, however, Nancy Opel's Dolly is very weak. Her singing voice doesn't have the gusto needed to pull such classics as the title song and before the parade passes by.

The show was fun. Everyone in the cast was very strong except for Dolly. I think she was a little stiff. Nice voice but not enough for Dolly the Matchmaker. Al Gero was fabulous as were the other actors and actresses. You will definitely...continued

Generally good, but too scaled-down for a production of "Hello, Dolly!" Also, I felt that some of the casting was questionable. Enjoyable ... just didn't live up to my expectations of seeing a show at Ford's Theatre that was co-produced with...continued

Overall a very good experience at historic Fords Theater which was part of the score. Hello Dolly was a very good ensemble effort. I enjoyed the show but no standing O! It was a noon matinee and I think
Dolly needed a Starbucks!

I saw the first revival of Hello Dolly in 1978 with Carol Channing. It would be hard for any performance to live up to that. I enjoyed the first act. In the second act, when Dolly makes her entrance into Harmonia Gardens, it is the biggest scene...continued

The actress playing Dolly is OK, but only OK. The cast does its best, but this is not nearly as good as the Broadway original which I saw back in the 60s. (A clear sign of my age.)

A good production. The dancing was outstanding, most of the characters well-played, and the lighting was terrific. The singing was good. All had fine voices, but Dolly could have used more oomph. The actress playing the niece, Ermengarde, was...continued
