It’s the 1890s in New York City and the mesmerising widow Dolly Levi has turned from socialite to matchmaker. Currently on her books are the grumpy "half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder and a young artist who is in love with Horace's niece.
Though highly successful at firing Cupid’s arrow, this time Dolly has her own secret agenda that starts to cause unforeseen problems. What starts off as a flawless plan soon spirals into comedic chaos and musical mayhem.
