Alli Mauzey Will Take Over as 'Ernestina' in HELLO, DOLLY! on Broadway
BroadwayWorld has just learned that Alli Mauzey will take over on Friday, March 23, in the role of Ernestina in Hello, Dolly! on Broadway. Jennifer Simard played her final performance yesterday, March 18.
Mauzey last appeared on Broadway as Glinda in the 10th Anniversary Company of Wicked, a role she has performed to critical acclaim on the First National Tour and the San Francisco Company. Mauzey's other Broadway credits include Lenora in the musical Cry-Baby, and Brenda in Hairspray both on Broadway and in the original company of the First National Tour. Alli made her New York City Center Encores! debut in the role of Sydney in It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman and recently starred in the Off-Broadway production of Red Eye of Love. Regionally, she has appeared as Mallory in City of Angels for Reprise!, Snookie in 110 in the Shade at the Pasadena Playhouse, and Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors at The Muny for which she was nominated for a Kevin Kline Award.
This production of Michael Stewart's and Jerry Herman's Hello, Dolly!, winner of four 2017 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, remains one of the most coveted tickets of the year, with audiences rushing to see the "historic event" (Rolling Stone) that has left "tears on the cheeks of critics" (The Washington Post). This production's history-making run broke the record for best first day of ticket sales in Broadway history, holds the record for the largest pre-performance advance sales in Broadway history, broke the box office record at the Shubert Theatre twelve times, and shattered The Shubert Organization's all-time-record ten times.
Directed by four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks and choreographed by Tony Award winner Warren Carlyle, Hello, Dolly! began performances on Broadway on March 15, 2017, and officially opened on Thursday, April 20, 2017.
This Hello, Dolly!, the first new production of the classic musical (based on Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker) to appear on Broadway since it opened more than fifty years ago, pays tribute to the work of its original director/ choreographer Gower Champion, which has been hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history.
