Below is a synopsis of the plot of “Hello, Dolly!” which was made famous as a Broadway musical starring Carol Channing.
With music and lyrics by Jerry Herman, it is based on a story by Thornton Wilder.
Widow Dolly Gallagher Levi, strong-minded matchmaker, arrives in New York to “help” Horace Vandergelder, a curmudgeonly, half-a-millionaire, widowed shop owner, find a new wife–while secretly plotting to marry him herself. Meanwhile, two of Vandergelder’s comedically-ridiculous employees abandon the shop and strike out to find adventure. Sweeping dance numbers, hilarious missteps, endearing chaos and, of course, love, ensue.
