Diahann Carroll's career is filled with an impressive list of firsts: She was the first African-American actress to have her own television series ("Julia"), the first black actress to star in Aaron Spelling's nighttime serial "Dynasty" (as Dominique Deveraux) and the first woman of color to portray silent-screen star Norma Desmond (in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard). And, Carroll may be the first singing actress to bring eight musicians to the intimate stage of Feinstein's at the Regency.
Beginning April 18, the multitalented performer ? backed by conductor Lee Norris and that eight-piece band ? will offer The Life and Times of Diahann Carroll at the famed New York nightspot.
