Debbie Reynolds (b. 1946)

Oscar-nominated actress Debbie Reynolds has starred in more than 30 motion pictures, two Broadway productions and two television series, and has been entertaining audiences at casinos in the United States and abroad for more than 55 years.

Reynolds shot to stardom as the female lead in the legendary “Singin’ in the Rain” and received a Best Actress Academy Award nomination for her famously feisty depiction of the title character in the “Unsinkable Molly Brown.”

In the mid-1960’s, Reynolds put together her first nightclub act, which debuted at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas. In the nearly 40 years since, she has been headlining on the casino-entertainment circuit from Reno, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas to Atlantic City to the London Palladium, pausing only to star in Broadway musicals like the revival of “Irene” in 1973, which broke box office records for a Broadway musical. Additionally, Reynolds has appeared in concert in every major American city and continues to tour an average of 44 weeks per year.
