Hello, Dolly! debuted on Broadway in 1964 after author Thornton Wilder retooled an earlier production to focus more on delightful character Dolly Levi, a professional "meddler" who sets up romantic couplings while plotting to score a gentleman suitor for herself! The role of Dolly Levi, originally brought to life on stage by Carol Channing, was further memorialized by Barbara Streisand in the 1969 film adaptation.
Artistic Director Edward R. Fernandez will direct this beloved classic at EPAC, bringing laughs and favorite songs to the stage. Audiences will root for Dolly as she plots to make her own match with wealthy Horace Vandergelder and helps the hapless young Cornelius and Barnaby along the way as they pursue their own romantic connections.
Described at its premiere by The New York Times as a "sunny new play about gloomy people," Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike follows three middle-aged, co-dependent siblings and other quirky characters as they move through life’s ups and downs, loves and losses. Set in nearby Bucks County, the production comes to EPAC after a successful run on Broadway and several awards, including a 2013 Tony Award for Best Play.
