THE MATCHMAKER NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Opening Night: June 2, 2012
Did He Like It?*
With his eye ever fixed on the bottom line, wealthy merchant Horace Vandergelder can't see the value of love - even as he searches for a wife. His matchmaker, Dolly Levi, however, is making her own plans for him, while his clerks pursue their hearts' desires in the big city. The Matchmaker performs in repertory as part of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival.
Adventure as a Cure for Ailing Love Lives

"It may take a little while for audiences to stop waiting for the band to strike up during “The Matchmaker,” the 1954 farce by Thornton Wilder that has been given a rare and loving revival at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Wilder’s confectionary comedy was the most popular of his plays on Broadway, where the original production ran for more than a year. But the fame of “The Matchmaker” has since been eclipsed both by the enduring greatness of Wilder’s two masterworks, “Our Town” and “The Skin of Our Teeth” — each a Pulitzer Prize winner — and by the huge commercial success and undeniable charm of the musical version of the play, “Hello, Dolly!”"
