I've written in the past about seeing on Broadway the wonderful all-Black cast of the show with Pearl Bailey, that co-starred Cab Calloway as Horace Vandergelder. Happily, they recorded a cast album, and happily there are a few videos of her performing a couple numbers from the show. But alas, there is no video version of her singiing the famous title number.
Except for this. Sort of.
I just came across this video of Pearl Bailey singing "Hello, Dolly!" with...The Muppets! Okay, no, it's not the same thing, but it'll have to do. And that's fine because it's thoroughly enjoyable on its own.
