This much-loved Broadway musical from the pen of Jerry Herman, tells the story of vivacious, meddling widow Dolly Levi, who, having fallen for a dour “well known, unmarried, half a millionaire” sets about secretly arranging a match for herself, whilst along the way ensuring the three relationships in which she is already meddling, also come to a happy conclusion.
With a movie version in 1969 starring Barbra Streisand and no fewer than 4 Broadway revivals, and most recently starring the sensational Bette Midler, it broke box office records week after week.
Join us for a great night out at the magnificent Empire Theatre, as to coin a phrase, It would be so nice to see you back where you belong.
Liverpool Empire Theatre proudly supports local amateur theatre.
In 1866, Liverpool Empire began its life as The Prince of Wales Theatre and Opera House and was run by gas light and steam power. The name changed to what it is today in 1895, so has had its name for over 100 years. It went through many refurbishments, before being bought by ATG and the theatre now stands about a quarter size bigger than it originally stood.
