Event Details

By popular demand - a repeat performance!

For almost 20 years Richard Skipper has chronicled the history of Hello, Dolly! and all of the women (and a few good men!) who played this iconic role. He has a website( which features over 1,000 interviews with the players and their first-hand accounts.

Now in Celebration of the 60 anniversary of Hello Dolly! Opening on Broadway on January 16th 1964 , Richard is truly celebrating these iconic players in a musical celebration chronicling the history, who these women are and the show that played (and continues to do so) against an ever-changing world landscape told through songs, video clips and questions from the audience. This is an interactive feel good show that will have audiences clamoring for more! 

"This show has brought me such joy throughout my life. In addition to Carol Channing (whose idea it was for me to take this baton and run with it!), I've had the pleasure of meeting and friending so many of the players throughout my own journey with this show. With so much anxiety in the world, let's celebrate love through the lens of one of the most beloved shows in the American musical comedy canon" -Richard Skipper
