    Performer Elaine Flynn performs as the incomparable Dorothy Parker who was a celebrated wit, a writer and a social satirist during the roaring 1920s.

    Dorothy Parker was the wittiest woman of the 1920’s. She held court at the Round Table at the Algonquin Hotel in NYC in the 1920’s. Her accomplishments include writing the screenplay for “A Star is Born.”

    Come learn about Dorothy’s escapades in New York, in Hollywood, and as she travels in Europe, spending time at a home which inspired F. Scott to write The Great Gadsby. Come listen to excerpts of her stories, magazine articles from Vanity Fair and The New Yorker and her poems including those from her best seller, Enough Rope. Once you get to know (or renew your acquaintance of) Dorothy Parker you will see why she was considered a legend in her own time.
