PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

In the opening scene, two Supreme Beings plan the beginning of the world with the relish of two slightly sadistic suburban wives decorating a living room. From this moment, the audience is whisked through the outrageous universe of Kathy and Mo, where two actresses play men and women struggling through the common rituals of modern life: teenagers on a date, sisters at their grandmother's funeral, a man and a woman together in a country-western bar. With boundless humor, PARALLEL LIVES reexamines the ongoing quest to find parity and love in a contest handicapped by capricious gods--or in this case, goddesses.

Wow!

I saw Parallel Lives last night. These two women will knock your socks off. It is a show about relationships and 'women's issues', but it is not 'male bashing' in any way. Men in the audience were having just as much fun as the women! I was afraid that I would be disappointed in the show- the HBO special is pretty funny. But this show is staged differently and well worth every penny. You get a chance to "see" each actress change from one character to the next - literally! At first I was skeptical of the gimic, but I loved how each actress 'put away' the last character and 'put on' the next one. Run- don't walk- to see Parallel Lives. You won't want to miss this!
