Move over, www.getmeahusbandquick.com, Dolly Gallagher Levi is coming to town. She might be old-school, but no matchmaker has been more successful than the bold, brassy blond who flaunts her talents in Jerry Herman's famous Tony Award-winning Broadway blockbuster Hello, Dolly! The turn-of-the-century love story follows the larger-than-life Dolly, a matchmaker from Yonkers who takes a handful of young lovers under her wing, and along the way gets a man of her own. The musical score is chock full of famous songs like "Hello Dolly," which Louie Armstrong made into a pop charts topper that actually usurped the Beatles' position on the charts at the time. This farcical, frothy, fun musical is built to keep you laughing. 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. Through July 24. Country Playhouse, 12802 Queensbury. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit www.countryplayhouse.org. $25.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: July 9. Continues through July 24, 2010
