Marilyn!

Adelphi Theatre

17 March 1983 (156 perts)

Stephanie Lawrence starred in MARILYN! The Musical. Rather waspishly described by Ned Sherrin as: “ an undiscovered recitation of all the well-known landmarks of Monroe’s life, inelegantly expressed to halting, derivative musak” – the foster home, the nude modelling, the “agent who had faith”, vulgar Hollywood moguls, mother’s madness, husbands DiMaggio and Miller, and finally death with telephone dangling.
