Out of her passion for all things Broadway, Carolan created the first Broadway cabaret in the state of Tennessee, Absinthe, A Broadway Cabaret, bringing Broadway performers and cabaret artists to perform standards from The Great American Songbook repertoire of classics by such beloved composers as Lerner & Loewe, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Gershwin, Berlin and Cole Porter. 

Raised on the Ohio River, in the picturesque pottery town of East Liverpool, Carolan’s upbringing was colored by a rich and diverse heritage. “My mother was Italian and my father was Yugoslavian”, she explains. “They were proud Americans and taught my brothers and I about our European heritage. They also taught us to be passionate in all we do.” That passion can be clearly seen in Trbovich’s life and career, which she approaches with great enthusiasm. As a recent resident of Sarasota, Carolan is reveling in a community that  mirrors her passion for the Arts.

BWW Review: THE SOAP MYTH at Sarasota Opera
April 29, 2019

The Sarasota Opera House, in conjunction with the Florida Holocaust Museum and the Tampa Jewish Community Centers & Federation presented a reading of The Soap Myth written by Jeff Cohen and directed by Pam Berlin. The story is set more than 50 years after the end of World War II, and dramatizes the warm friendship that develops between a young Jewish journalist and a cantankerous Holocaust Survivor on a crusade about the 'soap' displayed in Holocaust museums. In question is, did the Nazis make soap from the corpses of murdered Jews? The play grapples with the evil of anti-Semitism masquerading as Holocaust denial. The Soap Myth asks provocative questions like 'Who has the right to write history?' and 'How does a survivor survive surviving?' The reading commemorates International Holocaust Remembrance Day and dramatizes the powerful confrontation between a survivor's memory and contradicting historical evidence, or lack thereof.
