"Hello, Dolly! 50th Anniversary"
We celebrate Hello, Dolly!, the smash musical by Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart produced by the notorious David Merrick. Joining us to share stories and secrets about these legends and the birth of the show, are Sondra Lee, "Minnie Fay" in the original company; Lee Roy Reams, "Cornelius" in the 1978 Broadway revival and director of the 1995 revival; along with legendary dancing star Marge Champion, who assisted her then-husband, the late director/choreographer Gower Champion, while he shaped this hit. Wrapping up the show, Lee Roy Reams performs "Penny in My Pocket," a song Herman wrote for "Horace Vandergelder," that was cut during Dolly's out-of-town tryouts. D
