I was a little apprehensive going into Prince Rama's Journey. The venue isn't the greatest, to be honest, and a long, awkward curtain speech left me with oddly lowered expectations.

Hello, Dolly! good reason to come in from the cold
By Mindy Mateuszczyk
Hello, Dolly! is now performing at Lyric Arts Main Street Stage. It’s a delightful voyage into the classic musical theatre genre. Beth King, is a successful and endearing Dolly Gallagher Levi who moves the story ahead with wit, charm and solid acting.
Alyssa Wyatt, as Irene Malloy, delivers pitch perfect vocals. Her convincing rendition of “Ribbons Down My Back” is worth the price of admission alone.
