‘THE PORTABLE DOROTHY PARKER’: Unique production begins its three-night run at historic Kenyon Hall, 7:30 pm:
Kenyon Hall, West Seattle’s beloved performance palace, has been transformed into a 1940s New York City hotel room occupied by the famous wit and writer Dorothy Parker. For three nights only — Friday, April 20th to Sunday, April 22nd at 7:30 pm — Margot Avery [below] brings her remarkable portrayal of this American Original to West Seattle for the Pacific Northwest premiere of the award-winning The Portable Dorothy Parker.
As usual, the root beer floats with Husky Deli ice cream will be flowing and available for only $1.00 and the scintillating Lou Magor will be Master of Ceremonies.
The Portable Dorothy Parker has delighted audiences and accumulated accolades across the United States and the United Kingdom. Margot Avery’s performance has been called “a sensitive and nuanced biographical portrait of Parker,” “beyond enjoyable and so informative,” and “a pleasure to breathe in.” Playwright Annie Lux and director Lee Costello are also here in town. The show is the labor of love that these three women have created and have been traveling with across the country as well to last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and to London for two special performances at The Phoenix Artist Club in that city’s famous West End theatre district.
Tickets can be reserved by calling (206) 937-3513 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Cash and checks only accepted at the door.
