Ode To Carol!

 Fade Out - Fade In (above in the Playbill, and below with
co-star Jack Cassidy)
with music by Jule Styne, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green
came in a 1964.
The show had its "speed bumps."
The worst was when Carol landed a TV opportunity,
and left the production.
The crowds left, too! 

 Carol with Julie Andrews,
readying for their first televised concert together...1962.
"Carol and Julie at Carnegie Hall."

 Once Upon A Mattress, 1959...a Broadway coup for Carol,
 in which she played Princess Winifred.
A Tony nomination AND a regular gig on The Garry Moore Show.
Years later she would do the musical again,
this time as Queen Agravain
(below in a helluva get-up!)

 The quintessential quartet...
from The Carol Burnett Show (1967 - 1978):
Harvey Korman, Carol, Vickie Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner.

 Just two of the kagillion photos from that show...
Gone With The Wind and Sunset Boulevard skits.

As mean Miss Hannigan, in Annie,
the movie version, released in 1982.

 Carol with her daughters,
at the opening of Putting It Together.
Carrie (who died from cancer in 2002), Jody, and Erin.

An incredible performer,
who turns 83 on April 26!
