Description: Shortly before her untimely death Marilyn Monroe posed for what would be her final photo session. Marilyn: Forever Blonde is a recreation of what might have been Marilyn’s last chance to tell her story in her own words.

Award-winning producer and writer Greg Thompson painstakingly researched hundreds of Marilyn’s own quotes, resulting in two hours in Marilyn’s presence.

The play is funny, sad, witty, titillating, sometimes scandalous and in the end heartbreaking as we watch the desperation of a woman lost in a world of Hollywood make-believe.
