Dolly Parton announced during her appearance at CMA Fest in Nashville that she will release a new autobiographical Broadway musical, “Hello, I’m Dolly.”

Parton also took to social media to share the news. “Hello, I’m Dolly! I’ve been writing my life story as a Broadway musical for several years and I’m proud to announce we are finally developing ‘Hello, I’m Dolly – An Original Musical’ for the Broadway stage,” she wrote on X.

The show, which gets its title from Parton’s first album that debuted back in 1967, will premiere in 2026, and is “a new musical inspired by [Dolly’s] life and trailblazing career,” according to a press release.

“Hello, I’m Dolly, and I lived my whole life to see this show on stage,” Parton said in the press release. “I’ve written many original songs for the show and included all your favorites in it as well.”

“You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll clap, you’ll stomp, it truly is a Grand Ol’ Opera. Pun and fun intended. Don’t miss it!” she added.

Parton will co-produce the musical alongside Adam Speers for ATG Productions and Danny Nozell for CTK Enterprises.

“As the world knows, Dolly is a magical blend of talent, hard work, intelligence, charm, wit and a gigantically big heart,” said Speers. “I’m thrilled we’re going to bring her inspiring story to Broadway.”
