Jerry Lanning and Carol Logen slip so demurely into song that it’s a stunning surprise to
discover that a song that seems no more than a conventional romantic ballad should be
sneaking toward such a finish. At its conclusion on opening night at Circle in the Square,
the gingerly dalliance with sweet but surprisingly commanding melody could have been
reprised six or eight times, then and there.
Her soprano voice is exquisite.
She has a regal beauty, with a soprano voice as clear and pure as Waterford Crystal.
… Her pure soprano voice endears her to the audience and makes each song soar with a
life all its own.
If I could stuff Christmas stockings with shining theatrical moments, I would pick Jerry Lanning
and Carol Logen singing “My Darling, My Darling,” with Raul Julia in the warm and winning
revival of “Where’s Charley” in Circle in the Square.
Carol Logen performed on Broadway for seventeen years in shows that include Dreamgirls, On The 20th Century, Evita, Sweeney Todd and Where’s Charley. Internationally, she travelled with the Mark Taper Forum production of Tintypes to the former Czechoslovakia; and her two-person Andrew Lloyd Weber Review with Richard Ianni in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur culminated with a Command Performance for the Queen of Thailand for her Birthday celebration.
Together with August Gold and Joel Fotinos she co-founded Sacred Center New York, serving as it’s music and choir director and soloist. Performing with her vocal ensemble OneVoice she created the CDs Total Praise and Come My Beloved; she co-wrote the music with Andrew **** for her original CD I Set Myself Free. Her professional recordings include original cast recordings of Rex, Evita and On The 20th Century.
With this Quaker Hymn closest to her heart — “Through all the tumult and the strife, I hear that music ringing. It finds an echo in my soul, how can I keep from singing?” — Carol Logen has never stopped singing, no matter where the path of Life has led her.
Carol is a licensed and ordained Interfaith Minister. She creates and officiates stunning Ceremonies accompanied by the music her soul.
