The Marilyn Monroe Story – Followed by After Party Discotheque

www.jojodesmond.com

She is arguably the most famous Hollywood screen icon and pin-up. This show tells the story of her troubled life from the beginning to her untimely death, which to this day is still clouded in mystery. This ‘Cabaret documentary’- one-woman show on the life of Marilyn Monroe couldn’t come at a more poignant time in the era of ‘Me Too’ and the ‘Time’s up’ campaigns. ”The Marilyn Monroe Story” celebrates a woman whose life was shaped by others, from her early upbringing to fighting her own battle to escape the simplistic sex-symbol iconography that reduced an ambitious talent to a projection of men’s desires. Classical ballet dancer, singer and actress Jojo Desmond, captures Marilyn’s essence and sensuality through dialogue, dance and those famous songs, cleverly threading intriguing insights and awkward questions throughout, so you discover things you probably won’t know about her. Be prepared for great songs, jaw-droppingly gorgeous costumes and just a hint of mystery.
