About the Creator, Terrie Frankel

 

"Terrie Frankel is one of the most underrated songwriters in the US and I have loved her work for many years. Together with her late twin, Jennie, they wrote many wonderful songs as well as book and lyrics for several productions."

Born in Chicago, Terrie attended Chicago Music College of Roosevelt University on scholarship. Terrie and her identical twin sister, Jennie, sang the Original Doublemint Gum jingle, "Double your pleasure, double your fun with double good, double good, Doublemint gum!" in the late 1960's for the Arthur Meyerhoff Advertising company - the jingle that made the gum famous. The twins went on to perform with the United Servicemen's Organization (USO) in Vietnam, the Outrigger Hotel in Hawaii, various venues around the world, The Comedy Stores in both Hollywood and Westwood, California and Bud Friedman's Improv.

The twins also wrote, directed and produced Dr. Phil’s first TV pilot, "Solutions - The Dr. Philip McGraw Show."

The Parker Play Overview
This play was created both as a tribute to Dorothy Parker, who I feel was one of the greatest female humorist of the 20th century, and as a vehicle to show case my life long love to make people smile, laugh, and to write inspiring music.
