Welcome to Hello, Dolly!
Given that the production team left Dolly’s house around midnight, or a bit later, after rigorously debating the cast for Hello, Dolly!, this inaugural post of The Producer’s Blog may not live up to the stellar standard which I had envisioned. That being said, I officially welcome you to what I hope is a glimpse behind the scenes of a JMT production. Choosing the show for 2014 took a bit longer than usual over the summer, but Hello, Dolly! eventually won out. The show is celebrating it’s 50th year since the first production in 1964 starring Carol Channing.
JMT will have some exciting improvements in 2014, including a more streamlined, Playbill-style program, and an online ticketing system. I expect the rehearsal schedule to be finalized sometime in the next two weeks. On behalf of everyone on the production team, we hope you enjoy this year’s excursion to Yonkers, NY and the bright, humorous world of Dolly Levi and company. Enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving Holiday!
