Hello Dolly Squares. I've made these twice now. Extra yumm! Followed the recipe exactly, but the second time used toffee bits instead of nuts. Extra sweet, but super delish! I think I liked them better that way.
The film follows the story of Dolly Levi (a strong-willed matchmaker), as she travels to Yonkers, New York to find a match for the miserly "well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder. In doing so she convinces his niece, his niece's intended, and Horace's two clerks to travel to New York City.
Hello, Dolly! (1969) Composer Jerry Herman's Tony Award-winning Broadway musical was adapted for the big screen in an outsize production featuring Barbra Streisand as matchmaker Dolly Levi, a role originated on stage by a much-older Carol Channing. When wealthy merchant Horace Vandergelder (Walter Matthau) hires Dolly to find a mate for him, she decides to win him over for herself. Songs include "Before the Parade Passes By" and the glorious title tune.
My favorite musical, probably the best miscasting for a film ever. Barbra was much too young to play Dolly, but she pulled it off...and can she belt those great Jerry Herman tunes! I've seen both Carol Channing and Pearl Bailey on stage as Dolly, and they were great. But the soundtrack I love the best is the movie soundtrack. And what a visually beautiful film.
Hello, Dolly! The original design of Barbra Streisand's gold-beaded gown shown in the Harmonia Gardens scene weighed 40 pounds and cost $8,000. Twice during rehearsals, she tripped over its 2.5-foot train. Other dancers also tripped over it during rehearsal, so the train was taken off the dress. The train is shown intact when Streisand starts down the stairs, but later it disappears. See HELLO, DOLLY! live on stage with Music Circus at the Wells Fargo Pavilion JUNE 28-JULY 3, 2016. TICKETS…
