Lavish classic closes JJP season
Exuberant and vivacious widow Dolly Levi makes a living through her meddling and matchmaking, luring prospective “customers” into dance and mandolin lessons to woo their romantic targets. As the 20th century begins, Levi finally decides she needs to find a mate for herself.
The result is “Hello, Dolly!,” a lavish and brassy musical straight from the American theatrical standard. It’s forever linked with Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler, and Louis Armstrong’s recording of its title song broke The Beatles’ string of number-one hits in 1964.
“Hello, Dolly!” will close out Joe Jefferson Players’ 2018 – 2019 season with a run at its 11 S. Carlen St. facility through June 23.
Friday and Saturday curtain is at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinee is 2 p.m.
Tickets are $20, $15 for seniors/military and $10 for students.

Hats up at MAC
Headwear is just a plain fact of life in the subtropics. A dermatologist will call them practical, but a glance at Sunday church crowds and Mardi Gras receptions will tell you they’re fanciful, too.
For artist Karen McGahagin, they’re an avenue of expression. For the third year now – a hat trick, if you will – she’s assembled a group of 18 local artists to exercise their creativity through headwear. This year’s theme: The People of Mobile.
It will hang in the Mobile Arts Council’s (318 Dauphin St.) Danielle Juzan Gallery during June.
In the Skinny Gallery are works by 24 artists who took classes at the Connie Hudson Mobile Regional Senior Community Center.
Joining them are Ginger Woechan’s moody, abstract, brush-and-palette knife paintings in the Small Room.
An opening reception takes place 6 – 9 p.m., during the June 14 LoDa Artwalk.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday – Friday. Entrance is free.
For more information, call 251-432-9796 or go to mobilearts.org.
