Florence Henderson booking
From the boards of the Broadway stage to television and the silver screen, Florence Henderson has conquered just about every aspect of entertainment. So successfully in fact, that the multi-talented actress, talk show host, recording artist, author, Broadway veteran, and philanthropist was inducted into the Smithsonian Institute’s first permanent Entertainment History Exhibit as one of the greatest pop cultural icons of all time in Nov 2008, as well as receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her enthusiasm, professionalism, commitment to quality and artistry has made Ms. Henderson one of the most respected and endearing performers of our time.
Henderson’s career is as active today as when she first appeared as the “Today Girl” on NBC’s today show and the first woman to host The tonight show. Florence is no stranger to television today, appearing on such popular prime time programs as “Samantha Who” and made for television specials such as the critically acclaimed movie of the week for Hallmark entitled “Ladies of the House” and the very popular RLTV Network’s Florence Henderson show currently airing on Direct TV. Of course, she will always be best known in syndication worldwide as “America’s Favorite Mom” and matriarch Carol Brady, on the classic hit TV series The brady bunch.
Acknowledged as one of the top leading spokespersons in the U.S., Florence has been a celebrity spokeswoman for oldsmobile, Polident, Tang, Rain Soft, Pepsi Light and Wesson Oil. In fact, The wall street journal, based on consumer appeal, rated her #5 out of the 10 top television endorsers. So, it was no surprise when she was approached as a spokeswoman to help viewers get ready for the Analog-to-Digital TV Conversion in 2009. With a career built on trust and talent, Florence maintains a busy schedule as one of the most popular and sought after motivational speakers as well as performing her one-woman show entitled all the lives of me…A Musical Journey.
The audience interactive experience of all the lives of me…A Musical Journey, retraces her life starting as a child growing up during the Depression. Florence’s penchant for performing began as the youngest of 10 children to a sharecropper and his wife in a close-knit Midwestern family. Henderson’s mother taught her to sing, and at age two she had a repertoire of 50 songs, note perfect. At 8, Henderson was working in her father’s fields, and by 12 she was singing at the local store for groceries.
Her acting career began at age 17, when Florence entered New York’s prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts with financial assistance from a schoolmate’s parents. By age 18 she was making her Broadway debut, and then landed a part in Joshua Logan’s musical, wish you were here. Although the part was small, Florence’s flair and sheer talent attracted the attention of the legendary team of Rodgers & Hammerstein, who promptly stole her away to play the lead in the last national tour of Oklahoma!
Ms. Henderson’s reputation as a bright new star preceded her to Hollywood, where she starred in The great Waltz for the Los Angeles Civic Light Opera. Logan “reclaimed” her, and she returned to New York to originate the starring role of Fanny. Florence’s already-impressive resume includes her Brava performance as “Maria” in The sound of music, the lead in The girl who came to supper, Noel Coward’s last show on Broadway and her performance to sell-out crowds in the Lincoln Center production of South pacific as “Nellie Forbush.” Her drawing power and incredible appeal propelled her into to the starring role of “Anna” opposite Ricardo Montalban’s “King of Siam” in the production of The king and I. Florence’s magic touch was hardly limited to the stage. Her first feature film, The song of Norway, was shot over 8 months on location in Europe, bringing her into the international spotlight.
This multi-faceted actress broke new ground in television, as the star of one of the medium’s most beloved and longest-running situation comedies, The brady brunch. In 1969, when Henderson took the role, she wanted to make Carol a bit more realistic, begging the studio to let the character have a job, but her request was refused. The classic series aired for 5 seasons (1969-1974); has never been off the air in this country, and currently airs in 122 countries around the world.
As a producer and a talk-show host, her credits include 9 seasons of The Nashville Network’s cooking and comedy series country kitchen and the experiences inspired her to write a cookbook, A Little Cooking, A little talking and a whole lot of fun. Currently, Direct TV is airing the very popular RLTV Network’s Florence Henderson show. Florence’s shows are lively and spontaneous, offering a nostalgic pop cultural program including interviews with legendary guests and on location visits to famous Hollywood landmarks as well as first hand experiences such as flying with the Lima Lima Aviation Team.
In the mid 80’s Florence met and married John Kappas who introduced her to the study of hypnotherapy, and eventually becoming a hypnotherapist herself. In 2002, Florence faced the ultimate family challenge when her husband of 18 years was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Since that time, Florence has become a featured health care and motivational speaker, specializing in women’s health and is a spokeswoman for City of Hope Cancer Research Center among her other humanitarian interests. Whether on stage, screen, feature films, television or the printed page, her legion of fans internationally and nationally can count on her to continue sharing the many talents she possesses, and the warmth and exuberance with which she does so.
