Off-Broadway, she starred in Jackie Mason, the Musical (St. Luke’s Theatre), Christmas Family Reunion (Davenport Theatre), and When I Go (The Duke Theatre). Carol is the recipient of a Best Actress Award at the Strawberry Theatre Festival for her dramatic role as a schizophrenic Puerto Rican matriarch.
