Caroline O'Connor Caroline O'Connor has the kind of career most performers dream of, having recently returned from the USA after creating the role of Lily Malevsky-Malevitch in the world premiere, Broadway bound musical Anastasia. Caroline began her professional career as a ballet dancer with the Australian Opera Company after studying at the esteemed Royal Ballet School in London. She went on to perform extensively throughout the UK and Europe, most notably making her West End leading lady debut in 1995 as Mabel Normand in Jerry Herman's Mack and Mabel, earning her first Laurence Olivier Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical. At home in Australia, Caroline's credits are firmly stamped in theatrical history. Reviewing her most recent role as Rose in The Production Company's sell-out season of Gypsy, the Herald Sun wrote, "Gypsy is a star vehicle showcasing luminary Caroline O'Connor in a role that confirms her position in musical theatre royalty. In addition to the recognition she received for her roles as Velma Kelly in Chicago (Mo Award, Green Room Award, Australian Dance Award), Anita in West Side Story (Mo Award, Green Room Award) and Aldonza in Man of La Mancha, Caroline also garnered accolades for her peerless interpreting of Edith Piaf in Piaf (Helpmann Award, Green Room Award) and Judy Garland in the world premiere of End of the Rainbow (Helpmann Award, Sydney Theatre Award) at the Sydney Opera House. Caroline came to world attention in 2001 as tango dancing Nini Legs in the Air in Baz Luhrmann's Academy Award winning film Moulin Rouge. In 2002, Caroline made her Broadway debut as Velma Kelly in Chicago at the Shubert Theatre. Following rave reviews, her successful season was extended, and Caroline was later invited to perform at the show's 10th Anniversary Galas in New York and London, alongside legends Chita Rivera and Joel Grey. The one-woman play Bombshells was commissioned by the Melbourne Theatre Company and written for Caroline by award-winning playwright Joanna Murray-Smith, playing seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, before touring to sell-out performances at the Edinburgh Festival, where it won the coveted Fringe First Award. It also played at the Arts Theatre in the West End, where Caroline received her second Laurence Olivier Award nomination for Best Actress in a Play. Caroline has since taken Bombshells to America and Canada and it was filmed for Australian television. In 2008, distinguished Australian playwright David Williamson penned Scarlett O'Hara at the Crimson Parrot for Caroline.
One of these stars is Caroline O'Connor, a British-Australian singer, dancer and actress.
