Question by Drama Queen: What is the main plotline of Hello Dolly the musical?
I was looking up the plotline on wikipidea but it was very hard to follow, and seeing as I am looking into auditioning for Hello Dolly, well I think it might be useful to actually know what happens so if someone could just give me the basic main plotline that would be awesome!

It is a complicated plot with a lot of characters. Throughout the story, they are all looking for love, permanent or just for the night. That’s what to story is about. Dolly is Dolly Levi Gallagher, who makes her living “meddling”, mostly matchmaking. She is seeking wife for Horace Vandergelder, a store owner from Yonkers, but it is obvious that she really wants to marry him herself. He is planning to propose to someone else, Irene in New York City. Irene wants to marry but she is not in love with Horace. Horace has two employees, Cornelius and Barnaby. They travel to New York to have a good time. Horace goes to New York to meet up with Irene. Dolly also goes to New York. Much happens. Horace and Dolly eventually end up together.
