Tony Award-winning Broadway legend Betty Buckley stars in “Hello, Dolly!” – the universally acclaimed smash that NPR calls “the best show of the year!” Winner of 4 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, director Jerry Zaks’ “gorgeous” new production (Vogue) is “making people crazy happy!” (The Washington Post). Breaking box office records week after week and receiving thunderous raves on Broadway, this “Hello, Dolly!” pays tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion — hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history. Rolling Stone calls it “a must-see event. A musical comedy dream. If you’re lucky enough to score a ticket, you’ll be seeing something historic. Wow, wow, wow indeed!”
