 Carolan has impacted the entertainment, education and performing arts industries with groundbreaking new ideas in business operations, media management and community outreach. From her love of the Arts, she has pioneered MasterClass Guild, Conservatory of the Arts, designed for creative arts students to study with artists and industry professionals. 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.

The Urbanite is known for producing unconventional, outside the box, compelling work, bringing to life the undiscovered artistry of burgeoning playwrights and emerging talents of various artistic mediums. Surely we can expect nothing less from Denizen.

BWW Review: RAGTIME at Asolo Repertory TheatreBWW Review: RAGTIME at Asolo Repertory Theatre
May 15, 2018

RAGTIME is such an underrated piece of art. Although written in 1996 and staged for Broadway in 1998, it is almost prophetic in its reflection of the social unrest, racism and immigration sanctions prevalent in our world today. Based on the 1975 novel by E. L. Doctorow, with a book by Terrence McNally, music by Stephen Flaherty and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, RAGTIME is as relevant today as it was when first conceived. Its timelessness is a credit to its brilliant and perceptive writing, albeit a sad commentary of our present society which has not learned from its past and has not progressed much in civility or compassion.

It was delightful to screen the World Premiere of OLD DOG from producer/director Sally Rowe at the Sarasota Film festival. Who doesn't love a story about dogs! They are faithful, smart and for some reason love us humans unconditionally. So this story of a New Zealand farmer, Paul Sorenson, who developed new herding techniques for his dogs, piqued my interest.

Paying tribute to The Great American Songbook and composers such as Lerner and Loewe, Gershwin, Berlin and the likes, Audra started off with 'When Did I Fall In Love' from Fiorello. Pausing before the next song to appreciate Florida's warm and sunny weather, Audra joked that the North has had so many nor' easters that she was losing her color. That got quite a belly laugh and applause from her fans, and it was a good lead in to 'It Might As Well Be Spring' from State Fair. Audra had some fun with 'I Double Dare You' and 'The Facebook Song'. Her smooth vocals took us to a sultry night in the south with 'Summertime' and left the audience astounded with 'I Can't Stop Talking'. How does she move her mouth that fast?
