This golden era show has special meaning to me.  My very first musical theatre experience was at the Kennedy Centre with Pearl Bailey in Hello, Dolly!  After this QTC production, I went on to present the Broadway touring production in Vancouver of Hello, Dolly! starring Carol Channing.  My friend Betty Buckley starred in the 2018/2019 Broadway tour of Hello, Dolly!, and it’s composer Jerry Herman, became a friend after conferring me with the title of China’s Drag Mame in 2004, which moniker lives on to this day.
