Matchmaker Dolly Levi has promised to help wealthy widower Horace Vandergelder find his next wife and whisks him away to Manhattan to meet his dream woman. But Dolly has an agenda of her own, and Horace soon finds himself embroiled in a comedy-of-errors involving his niece and her lover, as well as two clerks who long for adventure in the city. From one of America's most beloved playwrights Thornton Wilder, this charming farce inspired the popular musical Hello, Dolly!, and is an uproarious exploration of the necessity of generosity, the limits of wealth, and the pursuit of the good life.
Casting for The Matchmaker includes: Michael J. Asberry, Clint Bidwell, Aldo Billingslea, Catherine Castellanos, John Chukwudelunzu, Will Dao, Ashley J. Hicks, Jordan Maia, Leontyne Mbele-Mbong, Zahan F. Mehta, Mākena Miller, Rachel Morrison, Chris Stevens, and Kaiy Watts. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
Creative team for The Matchmaker includes: Luis Garcia (Video Designer & Editor).
