‘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.
