Dixie Carter

Saturday, April 10, 2010

Dixie Carter may have made her name on the hit television series Designing Women, and she also starred on Broadway in the revival of Pal Joey and in Master Class – but she admitted that she found the most creative satisfaction from her cabaret career (which began only in the 1980s) – “To me, there’s no feeling as gorgeous as the feeling of singing. It’s like flying.”

Dixie Carter passed away just recently at the age of 70. She spoke with Leonard on March 11, 1996 when she was appearing at the Café Carlyle.
