Mother and daughter Debbie and Carrie both made their Broadway debuts in 1973 in the musical comedy revival of Irene, which earned Debbie a Tony Award nomination. She also appeared on Broadway in show Woman of the Year and the musical revue Debbie.

Carrie's Broadway credits include her one-woman show Wishful Drinking, Agnes of God and Censored Scenes From King Kong.

Debbie died on December 28 at the age of 84, a day after her 60-year-old daughter passed away.
