This one-woman show, a pre-season fundraiser, celebrates the 55th anniversary of the death of one of Hollywood's most famous actresses, Marilyn Monroe.

 

Written by David Lewis, a prolific British playwright, this play was written recently, though its inspiration began 20 years ago.  He initially chose to write about Marilyn because he was interested in what he thought she could represent: among other things, ambition, sexuality, stardom and the need to be taken seriously as an actor.

 

Over time, though, he came to appreciate her more as a person, and to understand what she had to do to achieve her goals.

 

Directed by Peggy Lord Chilton and featuring Candace Luciano as Marilyn, M.M. xx captures more than Marilyn Monroe’s doomed final act.  It also provides an intimate portrait of the life of the woman who was born ordinary Norma Jean Mortenson but died one of the world’s enduring icons. Featuring special visuals and effects by J. E. Jack, this gripping and poignant view of Marilyn’s life, told from her own perspective, was excellent theatre.   

 

LLT added this special pre-season fundraising show to support the on-going upgrading of the theatre building and technical equipment.
