Carlotta is the inspirations behind the movie Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Carlotta began her career in the 1960s as one of the original members of the internationally renowned Les Girls in Sydney’s Kings Cross. Shortly after starting at Les Girls, Carlotta became the show’s star and witty compare. Since then she has moved onto appearances in numerous television productions from Number 96 to Good Morning Australia with Bert Newton and more recently Beauty and the Beast with Stan Zemanek.

Carlotta – Live exposes the private dramas of iconic Australian entertainer Carlotta. A unique look into her life at Les Girls during the Golden Mile era of Kings Cross to appearances on hit Australian TV shows.

The shows takes the audience on a ride through Carlotta’s life; it peels away the mask of an iconic Australian entertainer, laying bare both the struggle and thrill of living life as a groundbreaking female performer. The journey unfolds with Carlotta’s unique and legendary comic humour punctuating the decades.
