A meddlesome matchmaker brings together the young clerk of a wealthy Yonkers merchant and his assistant with a widowed milliner and her assistant, while making sure she herself gets to marry the merchant, in Jerry Herman and Michael Stewart's musical adaptation of Thornton Wilder's 'The Matchmaker.' Beginning June 13, two-time Tony winner Donna Murphy will star as Dolly on Tuesday evenings and during Midler's vacations.

Funny, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if Are a fan of Bette. She doesn't disappoint while the first act is a bit slow the second act comes alive! Good dancing and singing too.

Don't see it if Aren't a fan of a big musical with a bit.of camp or aren't a fan of Midler as the controls the reins.

Delightful, Disappointing, Entertaining, Great staging, Fluffy

See it if you're a fan of the Divine Miss M. (and don't mind a little heartbreak over her declining voice) or love this Jerry Herman classic

Don't see it if you have high standards for lead performances. Midler, though a true star, is middling & Pierce is miscast. Still a classic though.

Also Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I saw it. Bette's got star quality no mat... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Dated, Entertaining, Great singing, Fluffy

See it if You already love the show or are a sucker for an old-fashioned musical. You want to see something staged how it would have been originally.

Don't see it if You're looking for something fresh--the piece feels dated; Bette and DHP lacked chemistry, and her voice has aged. And tickets are EXPENSIVE

Also Based on the rapturous reception it received last night, I suspect I'l... Read more Read less

Delightful, Masterful, Must see, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy the Golden Age musicals because this is the perfect example one- a loving homage to the original production's staging and design.

Don't see it if if you need musicals that are heavily Sondheim influenced or if melody gives you the hives because this score has it in abundance.

Funny, Delightful, Exquisite, Must see, Incredible design

See it if You want to see one of the few "perfect musicals" (in my opinion), at its best. The design is unreal, the performances are stellar.

Don't see it if You don't like Hello, Dolly. Because this production is a straightforward, true to the original production of that show.

Disappointing, Dated, Fun

See it if & only if you love Bette. I love DHP but he feels miscast here as do some of the others. Bette has so much fun it's infectious, though

Don't see it if Splashy, old fashioned musicals aren't your thing. You don't like so much dust on your "cheese." I was in minority. There were many ovations

See it if You want great performances by seasoned pros. Bette/DHP are spot on.. very faithful to the original

Don't see it if You want something new or reimagined. It can feel a bit dated and stale, but the sentiment and joy are still there.

Delightful, Masterful, Entertaining, Classic, Great singing

See it if You like classic Broadway theater with the amazing Bette at the helm. Huge set pieces, a strong chorus, and stunning production values- see!

Don't see it if You're looking for a modern or new interpretation or if you can only afford the balcony- set makes them all obstructed view! So frustrating!

See it if Bette Midler being Bette Midler in a fluffy, fun, timeless musical. She's 100% back where she belongs. I didn't blink. The costumes!!

Don't see it if You're not a Bette Midler fan, or if you thought Sweeney Todd, Dear Evan Hansen and Hamilton were too dramatically lightweight.
