Matchmaking was never so much fun as it is in this timeless tale of loves brought together by a unique and intuitive matchmaker. Long before the advent of eHarmony and match.com, there was Dolly Gallagher Levi.

This magical piece of musical theatre is a series of comic romantic entanglements filled with memorable songs such as “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” and “It Only Takes A Moment.” Show-stopping dance numbers like Dancing and The Waiter’s Gallop are combined with beautiful costumes to create a musical the whole family will enjoy.

This has career-changing consequences for the professor, the dean of faculty, his graduate assistant and a student he teaches. A riveting examination of personal and professional ethics, as well as of the proper mission of higher education in America, “Two Dollar Bill” has the ripped-from-the-headlines timeliness that is sure to inspire water cooler conversations and dinner table debates among audiences who see it.
