About Marilyn’s Vertigo — Featuring Isabelle Adjani
Marilyn’s Vertigo Solo Stage Performance by Isabelle Adjani
North American Premiere Thursday, October 12 & Friday, October 13, 2023 7:30pm FIAF Florence Gould Hall
Post-Show Champagne Toast on Friday, October 13
This extraordinary homage to Marilyn Monroe is based on the actress’s final interview, two days before her death. In a riveting solo stage performance, the renowned French actress Isabelle Adjani engages in a surreal dialogue with Monroe, oscillating in tone between an intimate conversation with a friend and a formal press interview—with moments of both voice-over and direct audience address. In her richly nuanced monologue, featuring an exact replica of the black Dior dress Monroe wore at her final photo session, Adjani interprets an icon while exploring the broader complexities of stardom, identity, and legacy.
The performances at FIAF conclude the worldwide run of Marilyn’s Vertigo making this your last chance to see the show!
The show is presented by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) as part of its Crossing The Line Festival. There will be a Champagne toast following the Friday, October 13 performance to celebrate the Festival's closing night.
