"Bernhardt On Broadway" is a one woman musical about the most famous actress the world has ever known.  Set in the 1890s when the Divine Sarah Bernhardt was at the height of her career, the show is reminiscent of the Golden Age of Musicals when you could count on leaving the theatre with a tun dancing in your head and a lyric tugging at your heart.  This is a 'no holds barred' expose about the world's first superstar who formed her own theatre company and traveled the globe performing to sold out crowds from Australia to Brazil, Russia to Canada.  Often referred to as the most famous actress the world has ever known, Madame Sarah appeared at the Traverse City Opera House where one of the balconies is inscribed with her name.

New York's Time Square Chronicles hailed "Bernhardt On Broadway" star Carol Dunitz as a consumate performer. As Bernhardt she addresses the audience in a relaxed and forthright way, talking about her present and reminiscing about her past, personally and professionally. Twelve showstopping songs enhance the action and seamlessly contribute to the story that unfolds. This is the disclosure of a woman who captivated several generations of theatergoers, performing over 150 roles during the course of her career. Bernhardt initiated celebrity endorsements, starred in the first feature length silent film, and hobnobbed with royalty on a regular basis.

Carol Dunitz, who wrote the music, script and lyrics for "Bernhardt On Broadway," read close to 100 books in French and English as well as countless articles and reviews before starting work on this show. Her extensive research ensures the audience is not only entertained but gains a thorough understanding of this eccentric star and what motivated her to persist, 'quand meme,' against all odds.
