Thornton Wilder’s Romantic Comedy The Matchmaker
Actors Co-op Theatres (Hollywood, CA)
Get ready to say “Hello, Dolly!” and welcome Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker to Actors Co-op Theatre. This comedy of mistaken identities, secret rendezvous and separated lovers was the basis for the musical and film Hello, Dolly! When matchmaker Dolly Levi meets Horace Vandergelder, she sets her sights on a match for herself. Of course, complications ensue — but so does adventure, love and a touch of insanity. Wilder’s play has proven to be an audience favorite in all its various incarnations, charming audiences wherever it’s staged.
