A brand new production of Hello, Dolly! will be at London's Adelphi Theatre from 11 August 2020 for a limited 30 week season.


The show reunites Imelda Staunton with director Dominic Cooke, following the critically acclaimed production of Stephen Sondheim's Follies at the National Theatre.


Hello, Dolly! also reunites Imelda Staunton with producers Michael Harrison and David Ian.


Their production of Gypsy at the Savoy Theatre was awarded the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, and for which Ms Staunton also won the Olivier Award for Best Actress In A Musical for her acclaimed portrayal of Momma Rose.


Imelda Staunton commented ...


"Well, I'm delighted and daunted in equal measure to be doing a new production of Hello, Dolly! in London next year.


I am so excited to be working again with Dominic Cooke, Michael Harrison and David Ian, and we all can't wait to bring Hello, Dolly! - which is a truly joyous show - back to the West End after all these years."


Hello, Dolly! has music and lyrics by Jerry Herman (La Cage aux Folles, Mack and Mabel, Mame) and book by Michael Stewart (42nd Street, Mack and Mabel, Barnum) and is one of the most iconic musicals of all time.


Jerry Herman's timeless score includes 'Put On Your Sunday Clothes', 'Ribbons Down My Back', 'Before the Parade Passes By', 'Elegance', 'It Only Takes a Moment' and of course, 'Hello, Dolly!'.
