Wick Theatre Makes History

403

The Wick Theatre is proud to present Lee Roy Reams as Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly! The Broadway legend is joined by an all-star cast including multiple Tony nominee Lewis J. Stadlen, James Clow and Susan Powell. The Jerry Herman musical about the irrepressible Yonkers matchmaker will run from November 5th-December 6th. Performances are Wednesday-Sunday with matinees at 2pm and evening shows at 7:30pm. Tickets start at $70 at www.thewick.org or call 561- 995-2333. “When Lee Roy told us that Jerry Herman gave his blessing for him to star as the iconic Dolly Levi, we knew we had to be the theater to present this ground-breaking production,” said Managing Executive Producer, Marilynn A. Wick. Reams who has directed lots of “Dollys” in his day, including Carol Channing in the final Broadway revival, says that he is taking on this challenge, not because he enjoys wearing women’s clothing, but because it’s a wonderful role and he loves the score. Reams who last played at The Wick in La Cage Aux Folles as female impersonator Alban, wore many of the gowns from his Broadway run. For this production, the Costume World team is busily creating his wardrobe for this history-making production. Adding to the star power is Broadway great, Lewis J. Stadlen, who plays Horace Vandergelder. Stadlen broke out in the 1970 musical Minnie’s Boys and went on to receive Tony nominations for his work in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Candide. James Clow makes his Wick debut at Cornelius Hackl and has been seen on Broadway in White Christmas, Assassins, Wonderful Town, Company, She Loves Me, and Blood Brothers. Susan Powell, Miss America 1981, enchanted audiences with her exquisite soprano as the emcee during The Wick’s summer hit, George M! She returns in this production as Irene Molloy, the beautiful, fun-loving milliner.
