Seeking to blend her love for song, dance, comedy and improv, Carolann produced, authored and starred in her solo-musical, If These Ball’s Could Talk (previously titled Burnt at the Steak).

The show received numerous accolades and rave reviews across its sold-out international and off-Broadway tour. Prior to her solo show, Ms. Valentino toured with the all-female comedy troupe “The Italian Chicks," endorsed and produced by Hollywood noteable, the late Danny Aiello. Carolann earned a Best Supporting Actress award at the Philadelphia International Film festival for her role as Evette in the 9-time award-winning feature film, "Casanova Was a Woman."
