Trivia & History

During the first weekend of November 1996, while the tour was in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Carol Channing missed four and a half performances due to food poisioning. These missed performances were said to have been the first time she had ever missed any performances as Dolly Gallagher Levi. Channing said in an interview that she had played 4,580 performances of Hello, Dolly! without ever having missed a performance. She was hoping to break Yul Brynner's record of 4,625 total performances in The King and I. (Brynner, however, missed a number of performances during his run in the original production.)

Understudy Monica M. Wemitt went on as Dolly while Channing was ill.

Channing did return after the weekend and the tour continued.
