Dorothy Parker once said, “The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue.” The same could be said of the unforgettable characters she wrote. Those characters come to life onstage in “Might As Well Live”, a modern twist on four of Dot’s most hilarious and heartbreaking stories.

“The Lovely Leave” finds Mimi Parker and Steve Parker, husband and wife together for the first time in months — and only for his very brief leave from the Army. But will expectations and anticipation ruin what should be a perfectly lovely leave?

“You Were Perfectly Fine” recreates a situation most of us have been in but wouldn’t like to admit it: waking up in someone else’s apartment the morning after a wild night and wondering what you did the night before.

“New York to Detroit” showcases the devastating breakdown of communication in a long-distance relationship.

And the main event of the night: “The Game” drops the audience in the middle of an engagement party, where a charades-like party game leads to devastating and life-changing revelations.

Parker’s characters are flawed, vulnerable, wickedly intelligent, screamingly funny, and unsettling familiar. You’ll laugh because you know someone like that, because you’ve been there, and because sometimes there’s nothing else to do in the face of life’s indignities and defeats.
