Hello, Dolly!

McLaren provided entertainment engineering services for the Broadway production Hello, Dolly! The musical opened in 2017 and tells the story of a matchmaker named Dolly (Bette Midler) who travels to Yonkers, New York, to find a match for a miserable ½ millionaire. McLaren provided structural engineering evaluation of the stage apron extension with scenic step units and production loads on house lighting supports, floor girder alterations, and stage right fly floor for loads on floor and from heavy scenic units at the underside at Shubert Theatre. McLaren also provided a structural engineering evaluation for the show rigging loads, and continues to do so annually to help assure ongoing safety of the musical, for Bernadette Peters as she begins her role of Dolly starting January 20th.
