Making its debut on Broadway way back in 1964, Hello Dolly! is in that special category of musicals filed under 'enduring classics'. One of the most famous female lead roles in the history of New York theatre thanks to Carol Channing, the part of Dolly Gallagher Levi is played here in Brazil by one of the country's most lauded actresses, Marília Pêra. Miguel Falabella, another well-known actor and the director of the production, is in the role of Horácio Vandergelder.
After a well-rated season in Rio de Janeiro, this lavish production looks set to make Hello Dolly!, with 29 actors and a 16-piece orchestra, one of the big theatre pulls of the season.
