Recreating the story of The Matchmaker, BATS brings to the stage the characters immortalised by the likes of Barbra Streisand, Walter Matthau and Michael Crawford as, once more under the direction of Ray Jeffrey, they give the  BATS  twist to "Sunday Clothes", "It takes a woman", "Elegance", "It only takes a moment" and of course the unforgettable "Hello, Dolly.”
