Matchmaker Dolly

“The Matchmaker” will keep You Laughing!

**** Highly Recommended **** I really enjoyed Goodman Theatre’s delightful revival of Thornton Wilder’s 1955 farce, “The Matchmaker”.  Some people might have preferred a production of “Hello, Dolly!”, David Merrick’s flashy musical hit based on “The Matchmaker”, but I’m glad the Goodman opted for the original.  I laughed and laughed, so “The Matchmaker” gets 4…
