My partner and I saw the show last night at the El Portal Theatre and it was an amazing evening. We share the same birthday which is August 5th and until last night I didn't realize it was also the anniversary of Marilyn's death. A HUGE highlight...continued

A very interesting play about Marilyn Monroe. It was well researched and excellently acted. I'm recommending it to all.

She's a very convincing Marilyn. Brought back many smiles, a few laughs and a few sad moments.

Quotes & Highlights

“It is a haunting image that Sunny Thompson creates. Every nuance, every eye blink, every gorgeous gown and her walk is Marilyn. This is truly one of the greatest performances of the modern stage. Thompson has the same magnetic presence that Monroe had and is astounding in this role. The production is exemplary. The set is gorgeous with exquisite design elements.” —San Francisco Online Daily News
“The delectable Sunny Thompson has the strange allure of Monroe down to a tee … you can’t take your eyes off her!”  —The London Times
