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

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.

Quotes & Highlights

“[The play] treads ground yet unworn … Nanin’s directorial use of film clips that blend into live action is creatively done … the script pulls no sexual punches.” —LA Weekly (Pick of the Week)
“The meticulous rendering is deliciously intimate; Marilyn shares her secrets with the audience as if confiding in her best friend … Odalys Nanin, as the producer, director and co-writer, has done a fantastic job bringing this highly entertaining, as well as moving production to life.” —RevoluTimes
