Rogers Street Theater reprises great Evening of Dorothy Parker #GloucesterMA

An Evening of Dorothy Parker: Staged Reading Celebrating Her Life & Work
A collabortive presentation by Carole Frohlich, David McCaleb & Nick Neyeloff with Sally Nutt & Lauren Suchecki

Rogers Street Theater, 68 Rogers Street, Gloucester, MA. www.RogersStreetTheater.org

Four expressive actors linger, pause and saunter through Parker bon mots and excerpts from her poems, prose, plays, reviews and ruminations. Snippets of her biography accompany segues, sparingly and effectively. The evening works for ardent fans or uninitiated because of the writing, staging and nuanced interpretation. This reading and fine acting honored Parker’s immense and undeniable writing and observational talent, and evoked her mastery of internal dialogue. Felt poignant, fresh and relevant.

  1. Shit shit shit, I need to get out more. I would love some Dorothy Parker bon mots.

    She is the reason I drink martinis.

    “I like to have a martini,
    Two at the very most.
    After three I’m under the table,
    after four I’m under my host.”
