Hello, Dolly!

Last night I attended the Theatre Under the Stars production of Hello, Dolly! starring Leslie Uggams as Dolly Levi. It was pretty good. Granted, not as good as the movie starring Barbra Streisand, but then no one in this world has Babs' pipes. The rest of the cast had fairly good singing voices, and a lot of them tried to imitate the accents and mannerisms of the movie cast. Mr. Vandergelder did a fair job of imitating Walther Matthau and Minnie Fay was hilarious talking about "cherries and feathers, cherries and feathers" that the customer wanted on her hat instead of the ribbons that were the fashion.

Overall, a very enjoyable night. Next up is Spelling Bee on March 28. Tickets are $20 in case you want to join us. Hey, sometimes one of us in the group can't make it and is willing to give up their ticket, so you may get lucky that way.
