Photo Flash: Carol Channing Returns to Town Hall with Justin Vivian Bond!
Last night, three-time Tony Award-winner Carol Channing joined LGBT icon and Tony Nominee Justin VivIan Bond in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: An Intimate Evening with Carol Channing and Justin VivIan Bond at Town Hall. The evening coincided with the 50th anniversary of Hello Dolly! (January 16, 1964) and was just one week before Carol's 93rd birthday.
Check out photos from the special event below!
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.
