So I'm chuffed to bits with this piece of news from the lovely people at the amazing Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park:
Completing the line up for 2009 will be the ten-time Tony Award-winning musical Hello Dolly! from 30 July – 12 September. The classic will be directed by Timothy Sheader and choreographed by Stephen Mear, collaborators on last year’s hit, Gigi. As one of the most enduring musical theatre hits of all time, the theatre’s park setting will indulge in the lavish glitz and glamour of New York as Dolly Levi comes to town to do what she does best: match-make. With Jerry Herman’s much-loved score including It Takes A Woman, Ribbons Down My Back and the hugely popular title song (made famous by Louis Armstrong), this is one of Broadway’s most irresistible musical comedies.Woo and indeed Hoo.
