About Florence

There is a good explanation why Florence Henderson has endured as one of the most beloved American entertainers of the last six decades. Long before she became a television icon as Carol Brady of "The Brady Bunch," Florence's talent, love of performing and love of people were matched with an ethic of hard work and a curiosity to explore new dimensions. These qualities opened doors of opportunity and success soon followed in almost every genre of the performing arts.

At age 17, she was accepted into the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York and within a year of attending the Academy, Broadway beckoned with a role in the chorus of Josh Logan's Wish You Were Here. Florence was discovered and became a protégé of the legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein, first starring as Laurey in the national company of Oklahoma. Her name was soon above the Broadway marquis in Fanny, The Sound of Music, The Girl Who Came to Supper, South Pacific, and The King and I, among others

She soon moved from Broadway to television, accepting the job as the "Today Show" Girl alongside pioneering broadcaster Dave Garroway. Florence was also a mainstay on live performance shows like "Ed Sullivan," the "Bell Television Hour" and others.

But that was all a warm up for mega-popular "The Brady Bunch," the television series that has remarkably not left the airwaves in syndication since it ceased production in 1974 after 117 episodes. It still airs in over 122 countries and Carol Brady became one of the most popular mothers in television history.

In more recent years, Florence performed on "Dancing With The Stars" at age 76 in 2010 and in September 2011 released her memoir Life Is Not a Stage: From Broadway Baby to Lovely Lady and Beyond (Center Street/Hachette Book Group). The autobiography spent time on the New York Times Bestsellers List.

Florence was inducted into the Smithsonian Institute's first permanent Entertainment History Exhibit as one of the greatest pop cultural icons of all time in November 2008. She was also awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2003. Her enthusiasm, professionalism, commitment to quality and artistry has made Florence Henderson one of the most respected and endearing performers of our time.

Today, Florence maintains a non-stop work schedule. In her rare spare time, her priority is family, notably her four children and five grandchildren. She also does motivational speaking.
