It’s been reported today that the 87 year old legend has broken her femur and hip in a fall, which caused her to cancel a performance scheduled for this Thursday, marking the first time that Channing has ever missed a performance in her entire career. Channing has been the epitome of “the show must go on” professionalism, having gone on with broken ribs, post surgery and I read once she even went on in a wheel chair. (I seem to recall her recounting how the one time she threw up in decades was during an inflight showing of the film adaptation of Hello, Dolly!) Though she has gone on in the past, the doctor’s insisted this time she take some time to rest and recuperate. Hopefully, she’ll be back up on her feet in no time. Get well soon, Carol!
