As a performer, Carol has performed in plays, musicals, stand-up comedy, long-form improvisation, and most recently, she created her own solo piece, In Carols’ Comedic Care, a loving homage showcasing three incomparable Carols – Channing, Burnett, and Kane as they take a fellow “Carol” under their wings on a healing exploration of PTSD with anecdotes, singing, and laughter.
A lifelong theatre lover, Carol received her BFA in Acting from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She also has “half” of an MFA in Directing (long story). A big state-hopper, she has lived and trained in New York, Chicago, Dallas, and Los Angeles. She is a member of the Stage Directors & Choreographers Society (SDC) and Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas (LMDA), a supremely appreciative member of Fierce Backbone, a new member of Neo Ensemble and Towne Street Theatre, and was a very proud participant of the 2016 Directors Lab West.
