Lynda Carter

April 9, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

The Franklin Theatre – Lynda Carter

Best known for winning our hearts as Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter is an accomplished singer who has performed to rave reviews before sell-out crowds around the world. In addition to her long acting career, Ms. Carter has the distinction of producing and starring in five highly-rated network television specials, several of which were Emmy nominated.

She has appeared on stage with many of the world’s most popular singers, including Ray Charles, Tom Jones, Kenny Rogers, Bob Hope, George Benson, and Ben Vereen. Ms. Carter made her professional singing debut at age 14 in Tempe, Arizona. In 1973 she won the Miss World-U.S.A. title and shortly thereafter outdistanced hundreds of other actresses for the part of Wonder Woman, a character she infused with such depth and humor that it has become one of the most indelible characters in television history. Her fame led to her becoming the “face” of Maybelline Cosmetics, and she remained Maybelline’s top model for more than a decade.

But her roots remained with her music. “Singing is in my soul”, says Ms. Carter. “I was on the road performing in my teens and travelled from the Catskills to Las Vegas, and from San Francisco to the saloons in Texas.” An engaging storyteller, she takes her audience on a journey where her life story and her music intertwine. Though Ms. Carter continued to act in films and television, when she had children she left the road to raise her young family. She returned to live performing in 2006, appearing on the London stage with an acclaimed star turn in Chicago. In 2007 she started touring again in venues across the country with her band of Nashville all-stars. She has brought her concert to major venues across the country, including at the Kennedy Center and here at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York.
