By Thornton Wilder; Directed by Craig Johnson; Presented by Girl Friday Productions
on the Boss Stage
When wealthy merchant Horace Vandergelder engages the services of legendary matchmaker Dolly Levi, he gets much more than he bargained for. Under Dolly’s clever guidance, a swirl of innocent clerks, spirited millineresses, snooty waiters and other eccentric characters become delightfully entangled in 19th century New York. Thornton Wilder’s hilarious farce about love, money and adventure features the signature humanity, wit and relevance of one of America’s greatest playwrights. This joyous romp celebrates the spirit of generosity and living life to the fullest.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
