Thank you to ALL ARTISTS mentioned in this blog for the gifts you have given to the world and continue to give!

With grateful XOXOXs ,

Please check out my blog celebrating Carol Channing and why I feel she deserves the 2013 Kennedy Center Honor.

 Thank you Terry LaBolt: I would love to see Carol Channing receive the Kennedy Center honor, wouldn't you? Please consider signing. Carol's 50+ years of bringing live theatre out on the road to practically every city in the US has been a rare gift to so many who might never have seen a live show otherwise. I was there for more than 1000 performances of HELLO, DOLLY. She never missed a performance. And she always delivered with an amazing energy that no one else I have ever worked with possessed; and I mean superhuman energy. Performing with her was like being shot out of a cannon - the only description I can think of that comes close. That energy was so powerful that it is still with me every single day. I think it was even one of the things that kept me alive through several rough patches. Please consider signing this; we're so close!

Check out my site celebrating my forthcoming book on Hello, Dolly!
I want this to be a definitive account of Hello, Dolly!  If any of you reading this have appeared in any production of Dolly, I'm interested in speaking with YOU!

When it comes to the history of Jerry Herman’s brilliant production, beyond the 5000 plus performances of my own, even I turn to Richard Skipper when I have questions about the remarkable ladies who followed me in the role that the world fell in love with over 50 years ago.”-Carol Channing
