Carol Channing's Oct. 20 public Q&A at The Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts on the Campus of Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT, has been postponed to a later date owing to complications to an earlier injury suffered by the Tony Award winner.
A spokesman for the 91-year-old Hello, Dolly! and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes star told Playbill.com on Oct. 10 that the actress' doctor advised against air travel for the immediate future. She recently "frustrated" an earlier fracture of her fifth vertebrae, which is expected to fully heal.
The tireless stage, film, TV and recording star is in physical therapy twice a week, and is in high spirits and eager to continue making her popular public appearances, her spokesman said on Oct. 10.
Channing lives in the Palm Springs area.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
