Film, Television and Broadway Star, Concert Stage and Recording Artist, Adrienne Barbeau's career spans 38 years and is still evolving.
She began performing in 1963 with the San Jose Civic Light Opera, and by the time she was 18, she had already entertained our servicemen on army bases throughout South East Asia and was on her way to New York where she made her Broadway debut as Tevye's second daughter, Hodel, in Fiddler on the Roof. A Tony nomination for her creation of Rizzo in the original Broadway production of 'Grease' led her back to California and the role of Bea Arthur's daughter, Carol, in the hit series, 'Maude' (currently in reruns on Nick at Nite's TV Land.)
Her numerous films for television include the Ace Award winning 'Doublecrossed: The Barry Seal Story' opposite Dennis Hopper; Scott Turow's 'Burden of Proof' with Hector Elizondo; and most recently NBC's Movie of the Week 'A Champion's Fight'. Weekly audiences can see her in a recurring role on 'Drew Carey' as Oswald's mom. Other recent series appearances include 'The Chronicle' and 'Sabrina, The Teen Age Witch'. She has just completed filming the pilot for a new series for HBO entitled 'Carnivāle'.
