She was nominated for ''Don't Bother Me, I Can't Cope'' (1972) ... and ''Your Arms Too Short to Box With God'' (1976).

In 1972, she lost the Tony to Bob Fosse for ''Pippin,'' and in 1977, she lost the Tony to Gene Saks for ''I Love My Wife.''

(Carroll also was a Tony nominee for Best Book for ''Don't Bother Me'' and lost to Hugh Wheeler's ''A Little Night Music.'')

Carroll, who deserves to be remembered as a pioneer, is credited as the first African-American woman to direct on Broadway.

Until 2016, when Liesl Tommy was nominated for ''Eclipsed,'' Carroll was the only African-American woman Tony-nominated for directing.

In addition, she was a theater educator, actress and playwright, and along the way, won an Obie Award and an Emmy Award.
