Hello, Dolly! is actually Opel's first show in the DC area and she certainly arrived with a bang:
"Nancy Opel, who has a touch of Debbie Reynolds' winsomeness about her, plays Dolly in a refreshing, straightforward way. She can be very funny, without underlining things, and she allows a vulnerability to peek through"
- The Baltimore Sun
