‘Hello Dolly!’ will say goodbye on Nov. 15
The venerable musical “Hello Dolly!” will run for five more weeks Thursdays and Saturdays at 1 and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 1 p..m. at Welk Resorts Theatre, 8860 Lawrence Welk Drive, Escondido.
Union-Tribune theater critic James Herbert writes that the “durable” musical, which premiered in 1964, is “a worthy showcase for some favorite Jerry Herman songs and plenty of visual splash.”
Herbert praises Ray Limon’s “sumptuous and well-performed Welk staging” and Janet Pitcher’s costumes.
The show closes on Sunday, November 15 with Cynthia Ferrer in the title role. “It’s a show whose parade of sweet nostalgia passes by in style,” Herbert writes.
