Andy Nyman has joined the cast of the upcoming London revival of Hello, Dolly!, which begins performances at the Adelphi Theatre August 11 prior to an official opening August 27.

Nyman, recently seen as Tevye in the Menier Chocolate Factory production of Fiddler on the Roof, will play Horace Vandergelder.

He joins the previously reported Olivier winners Imelda Staunton (Gypsy, Sweeney Todd) and Jenna Russell (Sunday in the Park with George, The Bridges of Madison County), who will star as Dolly Gallagher Levi and Irene Molloy, respectively. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

Dominic Cooke, who directed Staunton in the critically acclaimed production of Follies at the National Theatre, will direct the classic Jerry Herman-Michael Stewart musical, which is currently scheduled for a limited 30-week engagement.

Michael Harrison and David Ian produce.
