Marilyn Forever Blonde

EVENT INFORMATION

  • Date: 13-15/10/2009
  • Time: 7.30pm
It is 1962 and Marilyn Monroe is in the midst of a photo shoot. She is 36 years old and while she is still beautiful, she has lost some of that little girl charm that made her Hollywood's biggest star in the 20th Century Fox prime of her early twenties. Divorced for the third time and living alone, frustrated by Hollywood and tired of the label 'sex symbol' Marilyn longs to be respected for her talent and loved for who she really is rather than the character she has created for the silver screen. She wonders what it would be like to do it all over again. Award-winning actress and singer Sunny Thompson takes on the role of Marilyn. 'Amazing... An uncanny resemblance to Monroe, not only in vivacious figure but in her delicate voice. It's hard to discern where Monroe stops and Thompson begins' Broadway World. 'Masterpiece' Blackwell, Hollywood 'Pitch-perfect' LA Weekly 'A Star is reborn' Washington Record 'Breathtaking!' Boston Globe 'Sunny Thompson simply is Marilyn' Edge Boston Running time approx. 2 hours This show may contain elements of an adult nature, parental guidance is advised.
