When I did wigs for Miss Channing she was delightful. I loved squeezing into a tiny hotel bathroom to cut her wig on her. Afterwards she took it off and out fell her shoulder length white hair and she also lost the souther accent. I asked her where she was from and she said Connecticut but that ever since she played Lorilie Lee in " Hello Dolly " she couldn't shake the southern accent. What a doll. And a few years after that I was standing at the ferry dock to Fire Island and she and the Captain were getting off the boat and all the queens were living for her. I loved that she called out my name to say hello even before the boat had fully docked. A true original.
