Photo Flash: Carol Channing at LARGER THAN LIFE Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival
Broadway's Carol Channing was featured at this year's Tribeca Film Festival in the world premiere of a docuentary titled 'Carol Channing: Larger Than Life.' The film was directed by Dori Berinstein and written by Dori Berinstein and Adam Zucker. The film was received by the audience with great enthusiasm. At the end of the screening there was a Q&A with Dori Berinstein, the film's director, Carol Channing, her husband Harry Kullijian, producer B. Harlan Boll, and others involved in the project. Check out photos from the event below!
As described in press notes, "Director Dori Berinstein captures the magic and vivacity of the 90-year-old icon and throws it at the screen like roses at the stage during curtain call. You'll have a grin on your face and a tear in your eye, evidence that the original Dolly Levi is still glowin', still crowin', and still goin' strong."
Channing is the recipient of three Tony Awards (including one for lifetime achievement), a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination. Channing is best remembered for originating, on Broadway, the musical-comedy roles of bombshell Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and matchmaking widow Dolly Gallagher Levi in Hello, Dolly!
