Carol Burnett Square Unveiled in Los Angeles April 18
18 Apr 2013
Tony Award recipient Carol Burnett is honored April 18 with the naming of Carol Burnett Square at the intersection of Highland Avenue and Selma Avenue in Hollywood, CA.
The city of L.A. is honoring Burnett for her lifetime achievements in show business. The intersection, next to Hollywood High School, was chosen because the school was Burnett's alma mater and because she grew up in Hollywood.
Burnett is scheduled to be in attendance at the open unveiling of the Carol Burnett Square plaque at 2 PM.
Burnett, who received a Special Tony Award in 1969, was nominated for her performances in Once Upon a Mattress and Moon Over Buffalo. She has also been seen on Broadway in Putting It Together and Fade Out – Fade In.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
