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.)

She just released her first cd - not the expected musical showtunes but a great collection of the country, blues, folk and rock tunes she does in her concert appearances across the country.
In March of 1997, Adrienne gave birth to identical twin boys making her "the only woman on the maternity ward who was a member of AARP". She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Billy Van Zandt, the twins, William and Walker, and her older son, Cody.
