Sally Strutherswill be performing Hello, Dolly at the Alhambra Theater & Dining from February 29 to April 8, 2012. Ms. Struthers, whose rise to acting fame began with the hit TV show, “All in the Family”, is making her first appearance at the Alhambra and joins a growing list of TV stars that recently includes: Jamie Farr (Lend Me a Tenor); Barry Williams (The Odd Couple) and Loretta Switt (Amorous Crossings).
A little about the Show:
Hello, Dolly is about a brassy widow (Dolly Levi) with a knack for matchmaking. She takes a trip to New York to meet a millionaire, Mr. Vandergelder, whom has been courting another woman. Dolly fixes up his store clerks with the woman he had been courting with hopes of making a match with Mr. Vandergelder herself.
Executive Chef DeJuan Roy has been inspired by Hello Dolly’s setting and came up with a “plated meal” that will resemble a ‘big city’ feel. The menu will include: a starter course choice of either Wild Mushroom Cappuccino Soup or Panzenella Salad (a bread and tomato salad with herb vinaigrette dressing). The Entrée Choices include: Pan seared local Trout with Sweet Corn Succotash, Potato Dumplings and Smoked bacon, or Brazilian style BBQ Beef with Scalloped Potatoes and Broccoli, or Mojo marinated Chicken with Smoked cheddar and green pea risotto. And for dessert, Chef DeJuan will continue his twist on the Alhambra’s famous Chocolate Mouse (this time as a Chocolate Mousse Cake), as well as a choice of Buttermilk Pie or Crème Brulée. Yum!!!
