"Review: EPAC's 'Hello, Dolly!' may be old fashioned, but it's a lot of fun"

"HELLO, DOLLY! at EPAC is an Exhilarating Production"

Kelli Curtin, Theatre Sensation

Artistic Director Edward R. Fernandez will direct this beloved classic, 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 each pursue their own romantic connections. "I cannot wait to sink my directorial teeth into the heartwarming chocolate-covered valentine that is Hello, Dolly!", says Fernandez. "Hello, Dolly! is considered by some to be the greatest American Musical Comedy written. The story is very funny, but also warm and charming. I know that our production will do justice to this American Classic."

"Hello (again), Dolly!"
