Carla Zilber-Smith has been performing professionally for over 20 years as both a singer and actress in Canada, Boston, New York, and presently in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Her solo work received a SF Bay Guardian Best of the Bay award (under Best Solo Flights). Carla’s interest in solo work began at The Marsh when she saw the incomparable Charlie Varon perform. Since then it has been the form she is most interested in exploring and she has been compared (by the LA Times) to Lily Tomlin. She has performed in diverse settings ranging from the Boston Symphony Orchestra to folk/rock bands to sketch comedy. Carla is the vocalist for The SubUrbans and was one of the year 2000 Lilith Fair finalists. 

Carla has written several plays and solo pieces: A Motherhood, which debuted at The Luggage Store Excess Baggage Festival, Car Sex_, developed with Charlie Varon and performed at The Marsh, and License to Drive_, also developed with Charlie Varon, a piece chronicling her 15-year journey to learn how to drive. Carla’s play Notes, won her the Washington Square Players Young Playwright’s Award  and was produced off-Broadway at the Intar Theater in Manhattan.
