I'm hearing that stars who'll be gracing Cherry Grove's Ice Palace with performances this summer will include...

Chita Rivera

Margaret Cho

John Waters

Paula Poundstone, Lorna Luft, Lynda Carter, Bridget Everett, Justin Vivian Bond, Bruce Vilanch, Dina Martina...

And quite possibly--in fact, it's almost a done deal, according to what someone overheard last night--Carol Channing.

Looks like with the burnt-down Pavilion reopening in the Pines to lots of hoopla, the Grove will stay relevant thanks to some good old show biz!

Congrats to promoter Daniel Nardicio.

Will she do Harry Nilsson's "Skidoo"?  "Skidoo, skidoo, between one and three, there's a two!"

She can sing -- after a fashion -- and tell jokes disguised as "stories" and do her basso profundo Sophie Tucker voice and -- most importantly -- make you laugh.

Even though, as she says,"I'm titanium from the waist down."

And, as Savannah noted, she can still whistle, very important when you're telling your Cecilia Sissuns "story."

 I love Carol but what on earth can she really do at this point?

@blissbaby AllCarol has to do is show up and wave to the crowd. We LOVE her to teeny little bits.
