"We are so thrilled to have Beth and John back, exactly where they belong," said Muny Artistic Director and Executive Producer Mike Isaacson. "This incredible company is sure to do great honor to Jerry Herman's classic American musical on its '50th Anniversary.'"

This year, Hello, Dolly! celebrates its 50th anniversary, and The Muny closes its 96th season with a grand production of this classic musical comedy.
