This was very good performance in a nice intimate theater. The acting was very good and included some improvisation thanks to noises outside and a patron who forgot to turn off his phone. The story itself was very interesting, revealing some...continued

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 Marilyn Monroe besides her affairs with the men in her life. Always like this...continued

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 which would have been enjoyable had they been sung by someone else. It was...continued

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.

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

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 The playwrite pulled hundreds of historical references to create an interesting story. ...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!

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 on the part of "Marilyn" and some info on her life exposed that I didn't know...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 "Bobby Kennedy") but the script they had to work with was hackneyed in...continued

Interesting take on MM's private/public life. Not what I was expecting, yet I was wonderfully surprised!!! The actress portraying Marilyn channeled her quite well.... and she has MM's exact profile (scary good!!). I do reccomend this play, well...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 thing), walked out as soon as they got to intermission, but one of them thankfully...continued

It was fun, Although a little short. Loved the actual theater(very intimate and small) it is a little hidden though - drove past it twice. It was cute and focused on Marilyn's lesbian affairs. Well acted but happy I bought tickets that were cheap-...continued

An intimate and lighthearted portrayal of Marilyn's life reflecting her loves and losses. Predominantly a 1-woman show with some of Marilyn's songs and scenes, Very enjoyable and Kelly Mullis does a great Marilyn. It is a very enjoyable small...continued
