HELLO DOLLY 2/11/2020

This is a wonderful production! The cast is top notch, as are the costumes, live orchestra, lighting, and choreography. It is a treat for all senses! Carolee Carmello is fabulous as Dolly, she grabs hold of the audience from the very first scene. The dancers are marvels of athleticism and enthusiasm. If you have a kid in competitive dancing who is interested at all in getting into the theater, this is a MUST see. I have season tickets to the Fox Broadway series, this show made it into my top 5 favorites. Thanks for a delightfully entertaining evening!

BETTY BUCKLEY AS DOLLY LEVI A BIT OF A DISAPPOINTMENT

First, I don’t profess to be a professional theater critic, just a lover of the arts and season ticket holder of Las Vegas Smith Center since the first day it opened! About Hello Dolly: my opinion only, but the production needed a stronger lead as Dolly Levi. Betty Buckley has an impressive resume, but her portrayal in this show left us a bit dissapointed. Her vocals were a bit ‘off’ and weak, and her attempts at the dance numbers, the same. We would have loved to see someone else as Dolly. The production itself was spectacular from the dancers, singers to stage design. Just perfection! Only complaint.... Betty Buckley.

GREAT SHOW, BUT DISAPPOINTED THAT BUCKLEY DECIDED TO SKIP IT

We are subscribers in two Iowa cities for years and had just seen 7 shows in NYC. We were excited to get to see Betty Buckley today. After the 3 hour drive to Des Moines I was puzzled to not see any mention of Buckley in the cast. The show was great, but only now after driving home do I see where she decided to skip the trip. I guess everyone deserves a vacation.

GREAT PRODUCTION, WEAK LEAD

I was so looking forward to seeing Betty Buckley in the lead. But she just wasn't strong enough to carry such a big part. The production, choreography, costumes, and the dancing talent were terrific. Overall, it equated out to just an OK show.

WHO NEEDS BETTY BUCKLEY

Jessica Sheridan did a great job as Dolly. Can’t imagine anyone could have been better. Lots of understudy’s today. Curious if DCPA has to refund all the empty seats today.

DOLLY AND HORACE LEADS TO YOUNG FOR THE PARTS

I saw Hello Dolly today. Other than the leads, the stars were phenomenal. John Bolton has a nice voice, but he was too young to play Horace. Carolee could dance but singing was fate. The actors who played Irene, Jeremy and Corenelius were great. Let’s face it we go to Dolly to see Dolly and Carmelo is no Dolly Levi.
