Marilyn: Forever Blonde at Leicester Square theatre from 20 Oct 2009 with Sunny Thompson

Marilyn: Forever Blonde, The Marilyn Monroe Story in Her Own Words and Music, will open at the Leicester Square Theatre 22 Oct 2009, following previews from 20 Oct - running to 18 Nov 2009.

Starring Sunny Thompson as 'Marilyn' in this one woman play featuring 17 songs comprising the life of Marilyn Monroe.

Written by Greg Thompson and directed by Stephanie Shine.

The story takes place at a photo shoot just prior to Marilyn's untimely death. She is 36 years old and while she still is beautiful, she has lost some of the little girl charm that made her Hollywood's biggest star in the 20th Century Fox prime of her early twenties. Divorced for the third time and now living alone, frustrated by Hollywood and tired of the label a sex symbol, Marilyn longs to be respected for her talent and loved for who she really is rather than the character she has created for the silver screen. She wonders what it would be like to do it all over again...

Sunny Thompson (Marilyn) travelled the world performing in musical revues and in Off Broadway productions before settling in Spain, where she became a music video star. She has recorded eight albums, had her single 'Te Necesito' go gold, headlined 'Showgirls' at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, starred in her own shows for Harrah's at the famed Sammy's Showroom in Reno and the celebrated Southshore Room, Lake Tahoe.

Looking for the best seats...
