Set in Yonkers and New York City near the end off the nineteenth century, the action takes place in the course of a single day… and what action it is! Love makes the world go ’round, but a little money will grease the wheels – so proclaims canny marriage broker, Dolly Gallagher Levi. Engaged by rich, wife-seeking widower Horace Vandergelder, she artfully conspires to snag the man for herself and, in so doing, sets off a whirlwind of assorted missteps, mishaps, mistaken identities, and romantic entanglements that befall a dozen-or-so inter-related characters, each in their way primed to experience something new and invigorating in their lives.
