Views of and from Rogers Street Theater (former Empire space/Floating Lotus entrance on Main) before the show
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.
