The greatest and grandest of Golden Age musicals will come to life on LST stages for the first time in our history. Join us for this marvelous story that celebrates what it means to be alive!  Hello, Dolly! features well-known and loved melodies, thrilling dance numbers, riotous comedy, and of course – Mrs. Dolly Levi!

Based on Thornton Wilder’s novel, The Matchmaker, our show follows the irrepressible Dolly Levi as she orchestrates life, adventure, and even love for her friends – finding and reclaiming her own life along the way. A parade, an elegant day out on the town, and everything culminates in a jaw-dropping dance at the swankiest restaurant in town — Hello, Dolly! is musical theatre at its absolute finest, and will be a fantastic night out under the stars.

Life is full of so many wonderful things!
