Saw Dolly night of 3/10/09. First act is slow paced and at times amateurish. Second act is better but female singing to newly found boyfriend was pitchy and flat at times. Dolly falling down on the the stairs and doing three (yes three) encoures of 'Hello Dolly' number didn't add much.
The musical seems to have a hard time finding its identity. It comes across as a cross between Porgy and Bess/Dolly with the second lead black lady playing more Butterfly McQueen with a decided patois rather than a New York Younkers type we would expect.
Pat Cashman was a lot better than expected.

Im a subscribor.. this has to be the worst cast shown Ive seen in 8yrs. J. Lewis voice was pitchy, screamy, didnt finish her notes. My friends I shared my tickets with all held our ears at times. Suzanne's voice was very pitchy too! I've heard better singing at High School plays. We all thought Pat Cashman played his part very well... Besides casting the set was very nice but Im wishing Id chosen another show.
