The truth is the musical feels really, really dated. While the actors in the Bway version were wonderful, the plot is laughably creaky.

Sure, theatre fans know all the songs; but the public only knows the title song.

Hello, Dolly! lives solely because it has a great lead part that so many actresses are just dying to do. Otherwise it’s an old relic.

I expect to see it as part of an Encores season in a decade or so.
