Hello, Dolly!

I saw the first night of the Pentucket Players' performance of "Hello, Dolly!" tonight. It's running for two more nights this weekend, and it's really incredibly good. I had heard of Hello, Dolly! before, but I was pretty much going in blind -- I had no clue what the show was actually about, except that it took place in New York and that the main character's name was Dolly.

It reminded me a lot of The Importance of Being Earnest, and of Jeeves and Wooster. It's funny, and tightly plotted, and really well performed. If you have time this weekend and can make it to North Andover, I recomend it.
