Producers Michael Harrison and David Ian have announced that Imelda Staunton will return to the West End next year to lead a new production of Jerry Herman‘s iconic musical, Hello, Dolly!, which will play a strictly limited 30-week season at the Adelphi Theatre from 11 August 2020.
This brand new production reunites Imelda with director Dominic Cooke, following the critically acclaimed production of Follies at the National Theatre.
Olivier Award-winner and Tony Award- nominee Jenna Russell will join Staunton as Irene Molloy.
Staunton plays meddlesome socialite turned matchmaker Dolly Levi, as she travels to Yonkers, New York to find a match for the miserly, unmarried ‘half-a-millionaire’ Horace Vandergelder.
But everything changes when she decides that the next match she needs to make is for herself.
With music and lyrics by Jerry Herman (La Cage aux Folles, Mack and Mabel, Mame) and book by Michael Stewart (42nd Street, Mack and Mabel, Barnum), Hello, Dolly! is one of the most iconic musicals of all time.
Herman’s timeless score includes ‘Put On Your Sunday Clothes’, ‘Ribbons Down My Back’, ‘Before the Parade Passes By’, ‘Elegance’, ‘It Only Takes a Moment’ and of course, ‘Hello, Dolly!’.
