Throwback Thursday: Hello, Dolly! On Broadway

Click on the pic to enlarge

I’m in rehearsals for Hello, Dolly! at  The Wick Theater in Boca Raton, Florida, so I figure it’s time for a little #TBT.

The above pic was from the 1995 Broadway revival of Dolly with Carol Channing (who else?) at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater on West 46th Street, taken during the “Hello Dolly” number. I’m far right in the pic closest to Carol (there in the shadows, but happy to be there).

Below is the end of the very athletic “Waiter’s Gallop.” I’m second from the left with the shish kabob in my hand. Please note my pulled up feet 🙂

Staging the show now, and passing on what I learned with such a beautiful, wonderful company on Broadway always makes me smile.

Just to underscore that, I always share that in 22 months, no one left the company. We were all so happy to be there. That sounds so pollyanna, but it’s true. Trust me – that isn’t always the atmosphere backstage on Broadway.

Here’s to every Dolly past and present!
