Here is an ode to the woman who started her mornings brushing her teeth and sharpening her tongue. Inspired by famed writer and critic Dorothy Parker, the plot follows a young Parker as she navigates her insecurities with her perceived inadequacy as a writer. Playwright Anne Welsbacher refuses to allow her witty protagonist to dismiss her talents by constructing scenes that allow the fictional Parker to find the contentment she was unable to realize in real life. The two-person act features Denver stars Billie McBride as Parker and Paul Page as her spirit guide, Janus. Wed-Sat 7:30 p.m.
