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.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
