The KeyBank Broadway Series 2018-2019 season will include the first national tour of the Tony Award-winning musical revival of Hello, Dolly!

The musical stars Tony Award-winning actress Betty Buckley in the title role. It comes to Playhouse Square in October.



"The stars have once again aligned for the KeyBank Broadway Series," says Playhouse Square Executive Producer Gina Vernaci in a press release announcing the event. "Our audiences will literally receive the royal treatment when the legendary Queen of Broadway comes to the Connor Palace to launch the national tour of this beloved revival. What an honor to work with the renowned Broadway veteran Scott Rudin to launch this Tony Award-winning musical for the road."
