Bonnie & Clyde's Leslie Becker Will Star in Fireside Theatre's Hello, Dolly!
By Andrew Gans
Leslie Becker, who recently played Cumie Barrow (Clyde's Mother) in Broadway’s Bonnie & Clyde, will head the cast of the Fireside Theatre's upcoming production of Hello, Dolly! in Fort Atkinson, WI.
Performances, with Becker as matchmaker Dolly Levi, are scheduled for Aug. 23-Oct. 21.
About her latest role, Becker said, "I'm so thrilled to bring this legendary character to life. Dolly Levi is so special and I’m looking forward to bringing my own unique touch to it...I always enjoy the challenge of taking on a role that might have a specific actress associated with it, and honoring the style of the piece while still bringing myself to it in a whole new way."
Becker has also been seen on Broadway in Anything Goes.
Based on Thornton Wilder's 1955 play The Matchmaker, Hello, Dolly! features a book by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by Jerry Herman. Song titles include "Put On Your Sunday Clothes," "Before the Parade Passes By" and "It Only Takes a Moment."
