At the Shubert Theatre in Chicago, twice I saw Carleton Carpenter as Cornelius Hackl in the first national tour of Hello, Dolly! starring Carol Channing. First time I was with my family. I have the Shubert Playbill with ticket stub and souvenir program in my enormous theatrical memorabilia collection. Colorful and fun production with a wonderful cast! Second time I was sitting up in the stage right flies via a friend of the family with strong theatrical connections. This was at Carol's 1000th performance. At curtain call Carol was given a huge heart with 1000 red roses. Fond memories!
