WHO NEEDS BETTY BUCKLEY

Jessica Sheridan did a great job as Dolly. Can’t imagine anyone could have been better. Lots of understudy’s today. Curious if DCPA has to refund all the empty seats today.

GREAT SHOW, BUT DISAPPOINTED THAT BUCKLEY DECIDED TO SKIP IT

We are subscribers in two Iowa cities for years and had just seen 7 shows in NYC. We were excited to get to see Betty Buckley today. After the 3 hour drive to Des Moines I was puzzled to not see any mention of Buckley in the cast. The show was great, but only now after driving home do I see where she decided to skip the trip. I guess everyone deserves a vacation.

HELLO DOLLY

Was not impressed with Dolly. Her vocals were not great. And she didn’t seem to fit her role. The costumes were gorgeous and the set was beautiful. It was funny but the times when Dolly was on stage I was annoyed and bored. :(

A FUN NIGHT

as season ticket holders my wife and I wondered before the performance started wondered if we would leave at intermission..Wow were we surprised.. the dance scenes were superb. The cast led by Betty Buckley brought out the humor and magic of the play.. enjoyable is a vast understatement.. Go see it..

OLD SCHOOL FUN WITH BETTY BUCKLEY AND COMPANY!

What a fun show! This old-fashioned comedy has an almost vaudeville feel to it; kind of corny - and lots of fun! The staging is simple and effective, and it didn't distract from the wonderful songs and choreography. Even though I've loved the score for decades, I felt like I was hearing some of the songs for the first time. That's really special. I have long enjoyed Betty Buckley as a cabaret singer and this production makes good use of her broad talent for interpreting songs and making them her own. I imagine that's hard to pull off, given how many great actresses have played Dolly, but she nailed the role. All the main actors are solid and Lewis J. Stadlen is especially delightful as Horace Vandergelder. The dancing is a fantastic nod to Gower Champion, with huge props to the athletic "Waiters Romp." I can see why people who only know Hello, Dolly! from the glam Streisand movie may feel let down. Their loss. All I can say is enjoy this Hello, Dolly! before the parade passes by!

HELLO DOLLY WAS JUST ‘EH

Looked forward all season to seeing the great Betty Buckley. Songs were off, slower, felt like my grandmother was singing and felt she moved so stiffly like she was afraid to break a hip. Supporting cast was awesome. Costumes and set outstanding. Wouldn’t sign up to see this classic again.

A NIGHT OF COLOR, SONG AND LAUGHTER

I thoroughly loved this production of Hello Dolly. The humor, the timing, the energy, the choreography, the colors made for a night of pure enjoyment. I recognize that Betty Buckley may not have quite the prowess that she did in her earlier days, but her timing, and seasoned presence made her a lovable character. If you’re looking for an old school high energy musical that puts a smile on your face, and makes you realize the exuberant talent that’s out there, go see this production .
