Carol Channing to Answer Fans' Questions at Town Hall Show with Justin Vivian Bond, 1/20
Producer Daniel Nardicio invites fans and friends of Carol Channing to ask anything their heart desires. Eight video questions will be chosen and screened live on stage when the three-time Tony Award winning actress Carol Channing will be joined by LGBT icon and Tony Nominee Justin VivIan Bond in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: An Intimate Evening with Carol Channing and Justin VivIan Bond on Monday, January 20, 2014 at The Town Hall (123 West 43rd St, NYC). The evening conveniently coincides with the 50th anniversary of Hello Dolly! on Broadway, and will be one week before the living legend's 93rd birthday.
Placed between celebrity tributes, an intimate conversation with Ms. Channing by Mx Bond, questions will be posed to the living legend herself. Video submissions of questions one minute or less should be sent to email@example.com.
With ten Broadway shows to her credit, Ms. Channing, perhaps most recognized for creating the role of Lorelei Lee in Gentleman Prefer Blondes (Ziegfeld Theatre, Dec 8, 1949) and Dolly Gallagher Levi in Hello Dolly! (St. James Theatre on Jan 16, 1964), will regale audiences with stories of her 70-plus years in show business, her upbringing in San Francisco and her numerous costars. Bond, recently hailed by New Yorker as "the greatest cabaret artist of her generation," will open the show with a set of "love songs for Carol" before sitting down with Ms. Channing for a multimedia event featuring footage from her career, filmed celebrity tributes and video questions which will be submitted in advance.
Tickets for this once in a lifetime event are on-sale at www.channingandbond.com or in person at The Town Hall Box Office (123 West 43rd Street, NYC).
