Synopsis:

Hello, Dolly! (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Hello%2C_Dolly%21_%28film%29) is a musical with lyrics and music by Jerry Herman (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Jerry_Herman) and a book by Michael Stewart (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Michael_Stewart_%28playwright%29), based on Thornton Wilder (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Thornton_Wilder)‘s 1938 farce The Merchant of Yonkers (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/The_Merchant_of_Yonkers), which Wilder revised and retitled The Matchmaker (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/The_Matchmaker_%28film%29) in 1955.

Hello, Dolly! is the story of Mrs. Dolly Levi’s efforts to marry Horace Vandergelder, the well-known half-a-millionaire, and send his money circulating among the people like rainwater the way her late husband, Ephraim Levi, taught her. Along the way she also succeeds in matching up the young and beautiful Widow Molloy with Vandergelder’s head clerk, Cornelius Hackl; Cornelius’ assistant, Barnaby Tucker, with Mrs. Molloy’s assistant, Minnie Fay; and the struggling artist, Ambrose Kemper, with Mr. Vandergelder’s weeping niece, Ermengarde, all against Mr. Vandergelder’s wishes.
