Hello Dolly is one of my favorite musicals and I was so looking forward to this performance because of the legend of Betty Buckley but I left feeling disappointed. While I appreciate her Broadway history, I didn't feel that Betty Buckley brought justice to the Dolly Levi character. Quick songs were a beat slower, and I felt everyone was dancing around her vs. her being a part of it. The comedy aspects were delayed or flat in delivery. Costumes were beautiful and colorful. Sets were wonderful - loved the train! Supporting cast and dancers were fabulous!!

A HARD LEAD TO FOLLOW
Being a fan of the Hello Dolly staring Barbara Streisand as Dolly Gallagher Levi, Walter Matthau as Horace Vandergelder, and the unforgettable vocal performance Louis Armstrong, this was a disappointing rendition of the Hollywood classic. For this film to be recreated and choreographed on the big stage, it has to have just the right cast to pull it off, and there’s where it lacked. However I enjoyed the costumes and the sets very much.

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. :(

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.
