PTC Presents: Hello, Dolly!

PTC Pioneer Theater 2022 logo

PIONEER THEATRE COMPANY (PTC) presents the record-setting Broadway hit, Hello, Dolly! as the closing musical for the current season. Hello, Dolly!, based on the Thornton Wilder play The Matchmaker, went on to earn over ten Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score for authors MICHAEL STEWART and JERRY HERMAN. The turn-of- the-century romance, bursting with music and energetic dance will run from May 13 through May 28, 2022. 

“I’ve wanted to bring Hello, Dolly! to our stage ever since I arrived in Salt Lake City over ten years ago,” said PTC Artistic Director KAREN AZENBERG, who will direct and choreograph this production. “I’m excited to see this energetic and iconic musical come to life, especially with the outstanding cast we’ve assembled.” 

Dolly Levi is a widow, matchmaker, and also a professional meddler who ‘arranges things.’ Everything changes when she decides that the next match she needs to make is to find someone for herself! Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Hello Dolly! is boisterous and charming from start to finish, featuring such memorable songs as “Before the Parade Passes By,” “It Only Takes a Moment,” “It Takes a Woman,” and—of course—the title number.

“Dolly Levi is one of the strongest and richest starring roles for a woman ever written for the musical theatre,” said Azenberg. “Our Dolly Levi will join the ranks of Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Pearl Bailey, Mary Martin, Barbra Streisand, and more recently, Bette Midler and Bernadette Peters.”
