Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A stage actress and Actors Studio member whose theater roles have ranged from the ingenue "Gigi" to Mona, the madam, in the raucous "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" on Broadway and London's West End, Carlin Glynn has also made a handful of appearances in TV and films. She first played "Gigi" in her professional debut in Houston, then made the move to New York, where she appeared Off-Broadway in "The Waltz of the Toreadors" and in numerous other small theater productions, earning respect among her peers. Her breakthrough came with her Tony-winning turn as Miss Mona, the owner of the titular "Whorehouse", in the production co-written and co-directed by her husband Peter Masterson.
