How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I surprised my gf who is obsessed with Marilyn by taking her to this play. My gf absolutely loved it. The actress who played Marilyn was so impressive. She did not actually even really look like Marilyn but it didn't matter because she completely transformed into her through her voice and her mannerisms. Another review mentioned the play being "campy" and I would have to agree. It was definitely over the top and at times completely ridiculous but that was perfect because so was Marilyn.The theater itself is adorable, tiny, and so intimate that we felt like we were naughty voyeurs. My gf loved getting such a close up glimpse into Marilyn's world and I would describe her as being so captivated by Marilyn's performance that she was spellbound by the end. Goldstar is amazing for introducing me to this great theater. We will definitely be back to check out more plays there in the future.
