Reviews From The Ford's Theatre Production Of "Hello, Dolly!"
June 28th, 2013

Broadway World- "News of this production's new, trimmed down orchestrations are no cause for alarm: the arrangements fit the production with every jaunty note. As re-orchestrated by Kim Scharnberg, Jerry Herman's score sounds just as bubbly and brassy as ever..."

MD Theatre Guide- "Of course none of this success would have been possible if it weren't for the memorable songs by Jerry Herman, the terrific musical direction by James Moore, and the new orchestrations created for this production by Kim Scharnberg."

Baltimore Sun- "Much to be said, too, for the fresh orchestrations by Kim Scharnberg, who, using eight players (expertly led by James Moore) evokes a vintage ragtime ensemble- fully appropriate for the time period of the action and well-suited to Herman's score."
