Lights Up! Time Together with Carol Burnett at Fallsview

NIAGARA FALLS, ON, Feb. 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Audience members will have a rare opportunity to engage with legendary entertainer Carol Burnett in an intimate setting as she takes the stage May 4 & 5 at the Fallsview Casino Resort, performing Laughter and Reflection: A Conversation with Carol, Where the Audience Asks the Questions.

Widely recognized for her diverse talents in film, theatre and television, most notably her 11-year run on the variety program "The Carol Burnett Show", which won 25 Emmy Awards, Burnett has captured the hearts of millions, garnering 12 People's Choice Awards - more than any other woman in the award show's history. Throughout her distinguished career, she has received a multitude of awards, including eight Golden Globes, six Emmy Awards, the Kennedy Center Honors, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, among many others. She was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 1985, and most recently she was recognized as a best-selling author by New York Times, and earned her first Grammy nomination in 2010.

On the heels of two recent Q&A-style shows by Hollywood stars Al Pacino and Sean Penn, guests were asked who they would like to see next on stage, said Greg Medulun, Fallsview Casino's Director of Communications. "Carol Burnett's name came up frequently," said Medulun. "We're pleased to welcome such a highly admired entertainer and to offer guests a memorable evening with stories, laughs and the chance to ask a question."

May's concert line-up continues to celebrate international performers with Hong Kong Cantopop singer, Shirley Kwan, who is best known for her individualistic and progressive music style. Also appearing on the Avalon stage is the up-and-coming Italian trio, Il Volo, with guest Canadian songstress, Rosanna Riverso.
