Curtain Call
posted: October 26, 2009
All his life, Parker has been dreaming of the day he gets a standing ovation inside the Shubert theater he stands outside of.

Here's what he fancies Variety will have to say:

"After Parker ankled as the headliner in last season's boffo hit, the B.O. went from socko to floppo. Now he's back on Broadway, topliner at the whammo tuner at the Shubert and is rumored to be on his way to H'w'd. Anything Parker's in has legs -- except Parker, of course."*
