NEW YORK — Broadway is remembering Tony-winning actress Carol Channing.
The marquee lights of every Broadway
Channing delighted American audiences in over 5,000 performances as the scheming matchmaker Dolly Levi. Her performance earned her a Tony Award for best actress.
Broadway League chairman Thomas Schumacher says to see Channing "hold an audience in her thrall was a master class in star power."
Besides "Hello, Dolly!", Channing starred in other Broadway shows, but none with equal magnetism.
Channing received a special Tony in 1968 and a Tony for lifetime achievement in 1995.
