Behind every sex symbol, there is a story -- often tragic, always surprising -- of a thoroughly imperfect person. Now, writer/actor Amber Hargroder tells the story of the most famous sex symbol who ever lived in Monroe: Sex Symbol. Orphan. Monster
. Marilyn Monroe's tale could not be more dramatic (or lurid) if written by a pulp fiction hack. Born into poverty, "Norma Jeane Mortenson" bounced between foster homes and living with her insane mother. First noticed while working in a munitions factory, Monroe slowly climbed the heights of Hollywood fame, only to be destroyed by the trek. Hargroder herself spent an arduous 18 months researching the life of this enigmatic, witty woman who charmed the entire world. Directed by Cheryl Kaplan, this solo show reveals the human being behind the "Myth of Marilyn" -- an individual far more fascinating than any idol flickering on the silver screen.
