In 1968 Jennie and Terrie Frankel performed with the USO in Vietnam along with their troop which included Joey Bishop, Sig Sakowitz, Sara Sue and comedian Tony Diamond. Their 36+ shows were performed all over South Vietnam. What made their troop special is that they did not require electricity, so they were often dropped off in the boonies to perform for weary soldiers longing for a taste of home who would normally not have entertainment, such as the Bob Hope shows. This tribute is to Jennie and those who served. The video ends with a photo of Terrie Frankel and her interview with the Veteran's History Project for the Libarary of Congress.

For a Song and a Dance is from Room Enough For Two - The Life of Dorothy Parker - a musical tribute written and performed by Terrie Frankel, an award winning song writer and best selling author. This song takes place on the French Riviera in 1926, after Ernest Hemingway breaks Dorothy Parker's heart after a love affair on a cruise on the S.S. Roosevelt. Dorothy laments about her foolishness and how she finds herself lost, lonely and giving her useless, broken heart away to anyone who wants it... Feminist icon, Helen Reddy says... "Terrie Frankel is one of the most underrated songwriters in the US and I have loved her work for many years..."

Tonight's the Night! is the opening song for the Musical Tribute to Dorothy Parker written and performed by Terrie Frankel. Room Enough For Two - The Life of Dorothy Parker covers her entire life, from founding the Algonquin Round Table in New York in the early 1920's, to writing screenplays in Hollywood during the Depression, to having many loves in her life, including F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, to being Blacklisted in Hollywood in the 1950's and dying alone in New York in 1967. This song shows moments of the entire play.
This song was inspired by one of Dorothy Parker's most famous poems titled The Telephone, where she waits both patiently and impatiently for the phone to ring. In this one woman show, Dorothy has but one regret in life, the hours she wasted waiting for the phone to ring. Terrie Frankel captures this 'gender flaw' of females throughout history by pointing out that others went through the same routine: Romeo and Juliet, Bogy and Bacall, Cleopatra and Antony, etc...
