Carol's Back



Ten years ago I made the decision to start working on my own projects only. During that time I wrote several musicals (Bernhardt On Broadway, Mrs. President Lincoln and 2020: The Musical) and went on tour with one of them. It was truly liberating and great fun.

Last year, although I was no longer promoting my services, I was contacted by several people who needed writing and coaching. I took on this work and found it great to be out in the workplace again. 

While I plan to continue to work on my own projects, I am also accepting assignments. I'm confident this is the right move for me and look forward to helping others with their communication needs. I recently volunteered my services to New Enterprise Forum (NEF) and look forward to helping entrepreneurs who come to that organization.

In addition to writing and marketing, I plan to do some speaking and coaching. Last year I coached a young person applying to medical school and helped him with his interviewing skills. It was very rewarding to hear the positive feedback he received as a result and the professional schools where he was accepted for study.

In the past I promoted my services in a number of publications but primarily Crain's Detroit Business. That was very effective at an earlier time in my career. Having helped many businesses and individuals with advertising and promotion, I will now pursue other avenues.

I am looking forward to an exciting 2023 filled all kinds of new adventures and challenges!

Guess how many songs there are in 2020: The Musical? That’s right, twenty. Twenty songs with melodies that stay with you and lyrics that cut to the chase.

2020: THE MUSICAL not only deals with the issues but is also entertaining and fun. You many even discover a couple of songs that take aim at the current POTUS. There are many styles of music from marches to folk, New Orleans jazz to blues, musical theatre to rap.

The songs cover all the issues we care about including: global warming, reproductive rights, voting rights, LGBTQ rights, minimum wage, racism, gerrymandering, criminal justice reform, term limits for the Supreme Court, universal healthcare, legislation for lobbyists, tax code reform, a woman president, the Middle East conflict and much more.

2020: THE MUSICAL is interactive. There will be lots of opportunity for members of the audience to share thoughts, ideas and feelings about the issues.

2020: THE MUSICAL is an excellent vehicle for fundraisers. A sampler of songs as well as a short video on the show will be available mid-May. Please let us know if you would like to receive links to these materials.

2020: The Musical

"2020: The Musical" can be booked for performances starting June 1. The new show has fifteen songs about issues the American people want action on including global warming, gun control, a woman president, the border wall, tax reform, minimum wage, and campaign finance reform. The songs have catchy melodies and the lyrics cut to the chase telling it like it is and how it needs to be. "2020; The Musical" is interactive and performed in concert. Written, composed and performed by Carol Dunitz. A great vehicle for fundraising.

Note: Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic precluded performances of 2020: The Musical.
