  Dorothy Parker, New York Wit
No other American writer is remembered so vividly for her wit than is Dorothy Parker who once said, "The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue." A key figure in the glamorous New York literary world in the period between the wars, Dorothy wrote for Vogue, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker. Her books of poems and stories were highly praised, her reviews were memorable: "This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force." The Beaux Arts Alliance is delighted to present Parker in the Penthouse. The renowned cabaret star KT Sullivan will perform songs of the era, including Leo Robin's "Thanks for the Memory" and Dorothy Parker's "I Wished on the Moon." Ms. Sullivan will be accompanied by noted pianist Jon Weber. David Garrard Lowe will provide a narrative of Mrs. Parker's life and work. Do plan to join us for a stunning evening of champagne and hors d'oeuvres in a splendiferous private residence high above the lights of Gotham.

To benefit The Beaux Arts Alliance.
