Singer-actress Carol Lawrence earned widespread stardom quite early in her singing career with the immortal role of Maria in the Broadway musical "West Side Story." However, that success would not parlay into film stardom for Carol as established star Natalie Wood, in spite of the fact that she would need to be vocally dubbed by Marni Nixon, had the requisite clout to play Maria in the classic 1961 film version. Carol, however, endured as a celebrity and marched on from Broadway stage to Broadway stage to the tune of "Subways Are for Sleeping," "Saratoga," "I Do! I Do!" and "Kiss of the Spiderwoman." The dark, vivid beauty also stayed alive in clubs, cabarets, concerts and summer stock stages opposite then-husband, singer Robert Goulet, as a highly popular couple in the 60s. Born Carolina Maria Laraia in 1932, the Chicago-born hopeful started out as a singer/dancer in the chorus lines and made her Broadway debut with the "New Faces of 1952." Though Carol never matched the success brought on by her "West Side Story" role, she managed quite well with numerous TV guest spots and commercials that has welcomed her warm, inviting presence and graceful style. At age 70+, she continues to freshen up her durable talents, most recently on stage in "Amy's View" and the title role of "Mame." Carol has kept busy over the years as a talk show host and author, publishing her autobiography in 1990 and recently putting out a cook book.
