Last night, we joined Bost Musicals at the Liverpool Empire where they presented their incredible adaptation of ‘Hello, Dolly!’ This musical was written in 1964 by playwright Michael Stewartwe with lyrics and music by Jerry Herman.
‘Hello, Dolly!’ was our first experience of a production from Bost Musical, and whilst we had heard of their exceptional reputation, we were incredibly surprised at the level of quality from the whole team.
The whole cast were fantastic – leading the show was Pat Davies as Dolly who was a real joy to watch. Her co-star Tony Prince who plays the petulant yet still slightly endearing Horace Vandergelder had a brilliant on-stage presence and fulfilled the role as the half-a-millionaire bachelor very well.
The musical director Tricia Gaskell and choreographer Sarah Walker ensured the show was presented at an incredibly high quality that matched the talent.
The renowned director Elsie Kelly who after 46 of years of dedication to Bost, will be retiring after the end of these performances and we were incredibly grateful to see her final show and it made us feel like we were able to be a part of something really special.
