Imelda Staunton is to star as Dolly Levi in Jerry Herman’s legendary Broadway musical Hello Dolly! at the London Palladium from July 2024 for a limited season.

Multi-Olivier and BAFTA Award-winning Staunton plays meddlesome socialite turned matchmaker Dolly Levi, as she 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.

The production under the direction of Dominic Cooke will co-star Andy Nyman (Horace Vandergelder), Jenna Russell (Irene Molloy), Tyrone Huntley (Barnaby Tucker) and Harry Hepple (Cornelius Hackl).

With music and lyrics by Jerry Herman (La Cage aux Folles, Mack and Mabel, Mame) and book by Michael Stewart (42nd Street, Mack and Mabel, Barnum), Hello, Dolly! is one of the most iconic musicals of all time. Jerry Herman’s timeless score includes ‘Put On Your Sunday Clothes’, ‘Ribbons Down My Back’, ‘Before the Parade Passes By’, ‘Elegance’, ‘It Only Takes a Moment’ and of course, ‘Hello, Dolly!’.

Performances for Hello Dolly begin on 6 July 2024 for a limited 10 week season.
