The Matchmaker is the none musical version of the Dolly Gallagher Levi story. The story would later become the plot of Hello Dolly. In the Wilder's play, Dolly Gallagher Levi is the play's centerpiece. A widow who brokers marriages and other transactions in Yonkers, New York at the turn of the 20th century, she sets her sights on local merchant Horace Vandergelder, who has hired her to find him a wife. After a series of slapstick situations involving mistaken identities, secret rendezvous behind carefully placed screens, separated lovers, and a trip to night court, everyone finds themselves paired with a perfect match.
