Hello Dolly, due to begin performances in London on 11 August 2020 for a 30-week season starring Imelda Staunton, has been postponed.

Producers Michael Harrison and David Ian said, "whilst we are naturally disappointed that we aren't able to stage the show this summer, we are completely committed to Dominic Cooke's new production of Hello Dolly which has a cast of 34 and an orchestra of 18 musicians. Not wanting to compromise on the length of run, postponing until the time is right is the best option.

"We will announce the new season as soon as we can, and Dolly will most certainly be back where she belongs."
