Touted as a must-see revival of the original 1964 musical of the same name, Hello, Dolly!  is a four-time Tony Award winner that lives up to its predecessor.

Based on the book by Michael Stewart and paying tribute to the original choreography by Gower Champion, Hello, Dolly! tells the story of sassy, strong-willed matchmaker and widow Dolly Gallagher Levi as she tries to find a mate for a wealthy Yonkers grump.

Famously starring Carol Channing on Broadway and Barbra Streisand in the film of the same name, it's a romantic rollick that Rolling Stone magazine calls "a musical comedy dream.”

Through Dec. 15. $30-$110. Aronoff Center for the Arts, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, cincinnatiarts.org.
