It has been confirmed that Hello Dolly! will have its West End revival next Summer, playing at the London Palladium from the 6th July until the 14th September 2024, with opening night set for the 18th July.
This production of Jerry Herman (La Cage aux Folles) and Michael Stewart (42nd Street)’s musical will see Imelda Staunton playing the title role of Dolly. She will be joined in the production by Andy Nyman (Fiddler on the Roof) as Horace Vandergelder, Jenna Russell (Flowers for Mrs Harris) as Irene Molloy, Tyrone Huntley (Jesus Christ Superstar) as Barnaby Tucker and Harry Hepple (Follies) as Cornelius Hackl.

Meddlesome socialite turned matchmaker Dolly Levi travels to Yonkers, New York to find a match for the miserly, unmarried ‘half-a-millionaire’ Horace Vandergelder, but everything changes when she decides that the next match she needs to make is for herself.
Hello Dolly! features memorable songs such as “Put On Your Sunday Clothes”, “Ribbons Down My Back”, “Before the Parade Passes By”, “Elegance”, “It Only Takes a Moment” and “Hello, Dolly!”.
Meanwhile, the creative team for this production is set to include: set and costume design by Rae Smith, choreography by Bill Deamer, lighting by Jon Clark, sound by Paul Groothuis, video by Finn Ross and musical supervision by Nick Skilbeck.
