Sally Struthers to Lead HELLO, DOLLY! National Tour; Launches from New Jersey in October
One of the most enduring Broadway classics of all time, HELLO, DOLLY! starring Sally Struthers, launches its National Tour in October 2013 in New Jersey before visiting over 70 cities. Two-time Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Sally Struthers stars as the beloved matchmaker Dolly who travels to Yonkers, New York to find a match for the ornery "well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder.
Best known for her work as Gloria in the legendary television series All in the Family and more recently as Babette on Gilmore Girls, Struthers' career has spanned four decades. In addition to her ubiquitous TV career, she has sparkled on the musical theater stage nationwide with featured roles in Broadway productions of Annie, Grease and The Odd Couple, and regionally in The Full Monty, Mame, Legally Blonde and Chicago.
With an irresistible story and an unforgettable score including classics such as, "Hello, Dolly!", "Put on Your Sunday Clothes," "It Only Takes a Moment," and the show-stopping "Before the Parade Passes By," HELLO, DOLLY! has been delighting audiences around the world for 50 years.
Winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Choreography, HELLO, DOLLY! features music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart. Since its multi-Tony Award winning Broadway premiere in 1964, the show has had three Broadway revivals and boundless international success, as well as a film adaptation that was nominated for seven Academy Awards in 1969.
HELLO, DOLLY! starring Sally Struthers is directed by Jeffrey B. Moss, with choreography by Bob Richard, Lighting Design by Charlie Morrison, and Musical Supervision by Skip Brevis. The Executive Producer is Daniel Sher at Big League Productions, Inc.
