The Wild Party at thr Ritz Theatre"The Wild Party" is a wild party indeed. Based on an epic poem by Joseph Moncure March, and borrowing the poem's words for its lyrics, it is billed as a musical, but is more an operetta. Very little of the dialogue is spoken. Most of it is sung in a bold, brazen, somewhat dissonant but still melodic contemporary score.

“Hello Dolly” was “glowin’… crowin’… and goin’ strong” in Morristown

show review.

The 50th anniversary national tour of "Hello Dolly" was presented at the Mayo Center for the Performing Arts in Morristown on Saturday, November 9.

A little older, yes; but she was still able to turn on the little-girl, winsome charm her character first exhibited on the 1971 series, and her adoring audience definitely came to see.
