Showtune Sunday: All about Carol Channing, the Broadway legend who is 95 years young today!

An absolute national legend turns 95 today and we give the entire Sunday Showtune spotlight to her.

She is, of course, the great Carol Channing who is still going strong.

is a testament to remaining passionate and forever young.

She, of course, is best known for her Tony Award winning role of Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly which ran on Broadway forever then was a sensation in several later revivals.

But we also loved her in her Oscar-nominated role in Thoroughly Modern Millie and in her many hilarious talk show and sitcom guest appearances.

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 her beloved late husband, Harry Kullijian, have done to keep the arts in schools.

She has said the arts are like ‘fertilizer for the brain.’

One Remark

  1. She’s a pretty awesome lady. I hate that she became the subject or parody to the point that most know that over the top portrayal rather than the warm, outgoing woman she really is.
