Great show--The lead actress was great--amazing to watch her non-stop dialogue for over 1 1/2 hours & her mannerisms were great. I had no idea of the colorful past of... continued

It was marginal. The actress was so-so. She was not a singer. Would not recommend it.

The play, staging and direction were decent, however, the leading actress portraying Marilyn was not on point. Especially painful were Marilyn's numerous musical numbers... continued

I would highly recommend this play to everyone! The actress who played Marilyn carried the whole show brilliantly with her singing, dancing and she had us believing she was Marilyn. And all the secrets we learned about her were fascinating!

I'm not sure what the intention was here, to shock or inform or entertain or sensationalize, maybe some strange combination. I thought many of the lines were outright ridiculous & a bit trashy, certainly not a very fitting tribute to Marilyn Monroe.

Kelly who played Marilyn was excellent and I admire her endurance to
be on stage and delivering near most of the show. All the other
actors were excellent as well. Love the Macha. Great Fun.

I was prepared to not like this production because so many regional plays based on MM tend to be over-exaggerated and inaccurate, but this production is GOOD! The... continued

Horrible. It was not Marilyn, but invented gay Marilyn, with simulated sex. The actress was clumsy. The venue was hot. My friends (who are gay, so this is not a gay... continued

Because I am a diehard Marilyn Monroe fan, I had to see this play. Unfortunately, it was pretty awful. The actors were actually somewhat decent and talented (except for... continued

Fairly decent play although it's pretty much a one woman show. There are a few side actors but they have minor parts. Singing was good, flirting with the audience good... continued

Run, run, run to see this play. Kelly Mullis is amazing as Marilyn; you forget that this is not the "real" Marilyn. all the other actors play wonderful.
I wish this play will run longer so more people can enjoy it as well. Love it!!!
