Photo Flash: Jerry Herman Visits Maltz Jupiter Theatre's HELLO, DOLLY!

The Maltz Jupiter Theatre presents the final show of its 2011/12 season Hello, Dolly! through April 1, directed by Tony®-nominated director and choreographer Marcia Milgrom Dodge and starring Broadway veteran Vicki Lewis and Tony® winner Gary Beach. Composer and lyricist Jerry Herman was in the audience at last night's show. Herman, who won a Tony Award for Hello, Dolly!, came backstage after the show and congratulated the cast on the performance. Check out the photo below!

Hello, Dolly! is packed with memorable Jerry Herman songs, including 'Put On Your Sunday Clothes,' 'Before the Parade Passes By' and 'It Only Takes a Moment.' 

Based on the book by Michael Stewart, music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and Thornton Wilder's 1955 play "The Matchmaker," Hello, Dolly! became an award-winning hit musical that broke box office records and has attracted such stars as Carol Channing, Mary Martin, Pearl Bailey and Ginger Rogers in the title role.

When it first hit Broadway in 1964, "Hello Dolly!" dominated the Tony® Awards in ten categories, including Best Musical. The show received rave reviews and became the longest-running musical in Broadway history up to that time, running for 2,844 performances. It enjoyed three more Broadway revivals over the years, and its 1969 film was nominated for seven Academy Awards. Its musical score is in the Grammy Hall of Fame.

The show has local ties, too. Its original Broadway costumes were designed by former Tequesta resident Freddy Wittop, with many that can still be seen in the Permanent Collection of the Costume World Broadway Collection, a theatrical museum dedicated to Broadway costuming in Pompano Beach.

The show will also feature other recognizable stars, including Matt Loehr - who received rave reviews for the starring role in Theatre's 2011 production of Crazy for You - and Aaron Bower, who also appeared in Crazy for You and received critical acclaim for her role in the Theatre's January production of Cabaret.

Tickets to Hello, Dolly! (through April 1) start at $43 and may be purchased by calling (561) 575-2223 or by visiting www.jupitertheatre.org. Hello, Dolly! is sponsored by Admiral's Cove Cares Foundation.

Season subscriptions are also currently on sale for the Theatre's 2012/13 Tenth Anniversary Season Celebration, with subscriptions that start at $183. The shows featured in the Theatre's 2012/13 season include Amadeus, The Music Man, Singin' in the Rain, Doubt and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

In only nine seasons, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre has become one of Florida's preeminent professional theatres, committed to production and education through its collaborations with local and national artists. Currently the state's largest award-winning regional theatre, the Theatre draws over 70,000 people annually, serves a subscription base of more than 7,000 and has world-class classroom facilities in support of its Conservatory of Performing Arts, which serves hundreds of youth and adults. The Theatre is a member of the prestigious League of Resident Theatres and has earned numerous Carbonell Awards, South Florida's highest honor for artistic excellence.
