Barbra Streisand’s Hello, Dolly! Comes Back to Theaters for 50th Anniversary
It’s been 50 years since Barbra Streisand dazzled audiences as Dolly Levi in director Gene Kelly’s lavish, eye-popping Hello Dolly!– and she’ll be looking swell when the dazzling musical returns to movie theaters for two days only to mark its milestone anniversary.
Barbra Streisand leads a huge cast that also includes Walter Matthau, Michael Crawford, Marianne McAndrew, E.J. Peaker, Danny Lockin and Tommy Tune as they sing and dance through more than a dozen memorable songs by Jerry Herman, including “Put on Your Sunday Clothes,” “It Only Takes a Moment,” “Before the Parade Passes By” and, of course, the title tune, which features a cameo by jazz legend Louis Armstrong.
In Hello, Dolly!, matchmaker, Dolly Levi takes a trip to Yonkers, New York to see the “well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire,” Horace Vandergelder. While there, she convinces him, his two stock clerks and his niece and her beau to go to New York City.
Winner of three Academy Awards®, the spare-no-expenses production transformed Hello, Dolly! from a Broadway musical-comedy into an extravagant Hollywood production – which most recently enjoyed newfound popularity as the favorite movie of Wall-E in the Disney-Pixar film. Now, fans of all ages can get to know the incomparable Mrs. Levi and this fabled film in all of its big-screen splendor.
