Broadway legend Carol Channing is 91 today!

http://s3.broadway.com/article-photos/large/1.153946.jpgWhen it comes to showbiz troupers, they don’t come any more dedicated than the great Carol Channing who turns 91-years-young today.

She is a force of nature and I hope she knows how many people appreciate her for sharing her great talent and energy with us for all these years and for all the work she and the love of her life, Harry Kullijian, have done to keep the arts in schools.

Harry died on the eve of his 92nd birthday just a little over a month ago and my sources tell me Miss Channing is determined to carry on with their work.

They were junior high school sweethearts, didn’t see each other for more than 60 years, then reunited and married in 2003. They radiated happiness as you can see in the documentary Carol Channing: Larger Than Life, currently in theaters.

Below is a trailer for this fabulous movie as well as Miss Channing performing the wonderful ballad Before the Parade Passes By from her biggest hit show Hello Dolly.

One Remark

  1. I’ve been waiting to see this since you first wrote about it many months ago. Now that it has been released and playing in major cities, makes it all the worse since it probably won’t be shown in smaller cities. Hope they put it on VOD or release it on DVD very quickly.
