Pictures of Marilyn

October – November 2016
National WWII Museum
New Orleans, LA

In 1954 Marilyn Monroe was one of the biggest stars in the world, but she still struggled to take complete control of her life and career. This musical tracks Hollywood’s most iconic beauty from her days as a WWII factory worker up to the triumphant establishment of Marilyn Monroe Productions. She overcomes the influences of lovers Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller, the controlling grip of the studios, and her own anxieties to achieve her dream of true independence.

“Pictures of Marilyn will forever stay etched into the memories of local theater lovers.” – Crescent City Jewish News
