PROGRAM DESCRIPTION


The story of legendary performer Carol Channing's life is as colorful as the lipstick on her big,bright smile. In CAROL CHANNING: LARGER THAN LIFE, director Dori Berinstein, a three-time Tony Award®-winning Broadway Producer (ShowBusinessGotta Dance), along with co-writer Adam Zucker, capture the magic and vivacity of the 90-year-old icon – both onstage and off... past and present.  Called “terrific[2]”, “charming and seductive[3]”, “totally captivating and surprising[4]” and “an endless storehouse of salty showbiz anecdotes[5]”, this triumphant and acclaimed 2012 theatrically released film, an Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival and Hot Docs – will make its DVD debut this May… only from Entertainment One.


From her penultimate role in Jerry Herman’s Broadway classic, “Hello, Dolly!” which she performed over 5000 times and her Oscar® nominated turn as Muzzy in 1967’s Thoroughly Modern Millie to her 1995 Lifetime Achievement Tony Award® and her 2003 one-woman show, “The First Eighty Years Are the Hardest”, Carol Channing has long been celebrated as one of our most talented and inimitable performers.  With her unique and easily recognizable voice and her mega-watt presence, LARGER THAN LIFE is a rarefied journey inside Broadway's most glamorous era, and a look at an inspiring, incomparable and always entertaining American legend.  Interviews include her late husband Harry Kullijian,


Jerry Herman, Lily Tomlin, Chita Rivera, Barbara Walters, Tyne Daly, Debbie Reynolds, Phyllis Diller, Loni Anderson, JoAnne Worley, Tippi Hedren, Bob Mackie and Bruce Vilanch, as well as Channing herself.
