The Matchmaker

"Ninety-nine percent of the people in the world are fools and the rest of us are in great danger of contagion." So says The Matchmaker's wealthy widower Horace Vandergelder who recruits the vivacious and sly Dolly Levi to find him a new wife. "One of the sweetest and smartest romantic farces ever written" (The Wall Street Journal), Thornton Wilder's wild mix of outrageous misbehavior, mistaken identity, and spontaneous romance is the inspiration for Hello, Dolly. Abigail Adams directs an all-star cast in this classic American satire.
