Career[edit]

Barash, who was also raised in New York City, began her work in the entertainment industry at the age of five years. During her early years of acting, singing and dancing in classic musicals on stage in New York, Olivia starred as “Baby June” in Gypsy with Angela Lansbury. She was the first child actor to win the acclaimed New York Critic's Circle Award.[1] Moving to Hollywood as a teen with her family, she attended Palisades High School in Pacific Palisades, California and graduated in 1982.

In 1983, Barash appeared on the cover of Los Angeles disc jockey Rodney Bingenheimer's "Rodney On the Roq" volume #3 album as a uniformed, high school teen in a classroom. The album was a collection of punk rock and "new wave" songs featured on Bingenheimer's late night radio show on 106.7 KROQ-FM in Los Angeles. In 1984 she appeared as a guest on Bingenheimer's radio show to promote Repo Man.

She is currently directing and producing with Fallout Entertainment: Friends Of The Viper Room. This project was inspired by her accounts and experiences while working at the Los Angeles club The Viper Room back in its heyday in the mid 1990s.[2]
