The old Cotton Club was the venue for High Tea, an acclaimed Off-Broadway musical in which she starred opposite of legendary Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer, LaVern Baker. Bonnie made her television debut as a teen on “The Barbara McNair Show” & continued to work on several TV shows including a role opposite Billy Crystal on “Soap,” while training with comedy legend Phil Foster.
