It’s been a slow month for Dorothy Parker news, but this came over the transom, courtesy of the Utica Drop Forge and Tool Company. It looks like the first Parker play of the Millenium in New York is about to open.
We don’t know much about this play, except for the pertinent information. Perhaps someone in the show will send us a note and tell us more about the production?
Dorothy Parker: Short Stories, directed by Ted Sluberski, is playing at the 42nd Street Workshop next month. The address is 432 West 42nd St., 5th Floor. The show is running Thursday-Saturday, March 2,3,4 and 9,10,11 at 8:00 p.m. The stories to be performed are some of Parker’s most famous: Just a Little One, The Last Tea, Here We Are, The Lovely Leave and You Were Perfectly Fine. The cast includes Tracy Lee Bell, Michael Conners, Suzie Devoe, Tony Hale, Jill Jackson, Jim Macauley, Veronique JeanMarie and Kathleen O’Grady. Reservations are suggested, call 212-695-4173 and tickets are a very reasonable $10. Also note, there is no elevator, so you have to be able to walk up those five flights of stairs.
We may organize a DPSNY night out to see the show.
