Carol's "Not Quite Close to Broadway" Debut

After Carol's close encounter with Off Broadway (see below), she began co-writing another musical entitled Flora with Whitney Ryan Garrity.  The book and lyrics are written by Whitney, and the music written by Carol.  They are currently trying to get it "work shopped" in order for it to come to life on stage - sometime before the end of this century!  If you're interested in producing and/or financing an entire musical, and making millions of dollars,  just click "Contact Me" on the left navigation bar! ==========================================

Carol's "Almost" Off Broadway Debut

After a 2007 summer-long siege of work, worry and wondering what's going on, Carol was overjoyed to announce that two songs she had written "almost made" their Off Broadway debut at the 2,800 seat Beacon Theatre, New York City in the showcase performance of "Gals Too Big for Broadway" written and produced by CC Cowan/Cowan & Cowan Productions.  In addition, she co-wrote the main theme song with Cowan.  However, the 2008 opening date was cancelled at the eleventh hour.
Bummer!!!!                   Bummer!!!!                      Bummer!!!!
The cast was to include Martha Wash (best known for her timeless hit, "It's Raining Men"), Judy Peterson (gospel vocalist/actress in Tyler Perry's "Madea's Class Reunion"), and Sarah Dash (of "Patti LaBelle & the Bluebells" and "LaBelle" fame with endless hits like "Lady Marmalade"), who promised to belt it out in big city fashion.  Carol and her husband Dan were suppose to be flown back for opening night....quite a treat for two who have never even been to New York.

Carol is still very grateful for this opportunity and hopeful the musical can be resurrected in the future!!

Local newspapers even got onto the bandwagon!  Click here to read the story.
