The Winnipeg Art Gallery is present a One woman play telling the Story of Marilyn using only her own quotes.
Here’s a snipit from WAG’s site:
Marilyn: Forever Blonde… It is 1962 and Marilyn Monroe is in the midst of a photo shoot. She is 36-years old, and while she is still beautiful, she has lost a little of the girlish charm that made her Hollywood’s biggest star in her early 20s. Divorced for the third time and living alone, frustrated by Hollywood and tired of the sex symbol label, Marilyn longs to be respected for her talent and loved for who she really is rather than the character she has created on the silver screen. She wonders what it would be like to do it all over again.
“This is Marilyn’s story in her own words and music, not studio press agent hype and not the words of hundreds of authors who have attempted to tell her story from their own personal point of view,” says the writer and producer Greg Thompson.
The show is running @ 8pm on March 27th and 28th, and April 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th and also @ 2pm on March 28th and 29th, and April 4th, 11th and 12th. Price for non-WAG members are $38 or adults and $34 for seniors and students. Tickets also include complimentary admission to the Marilyn Monroe:Life as a Legend exhibition for the same day as the performance. Tickets are available at the WAG or from Ticketmaster
