Chicago Parker Show is Nov. 7

Karen MasonAttention Chicagoland: The Chicago Humanities Festival is scheduled to present You Might As Well Live on Nov. 7, 2004. This one-woman musical play, featuring Broadway and cabaret star Karen Mason, uses Mrs. Parker’s poetry and one short story, “The Waltz,” as lyrics for a tuneful and jazzy score. In the play, a middle-aged Dorothy Parker is attempting to put together a collection of her poetry, which is already well past deadline, while fielding calls from her ex-husband Alan Campbell, who wants her to come to Hollywood to write a screenplay for Marilyn Monroe. In the process of sifting through her work, she confronts the demons of her past and her disappointment that she wasn’t taken more seriously as a writer.
