One Night With Marilyn  

Glamorous and feminine, Marilyn is undoubtedly one of the greatest legends of the 20th century; and it seems to me that with time her legendary status grows bigger, as more and more admirers join the cult of the blond Hollywood Goddess.

But what is it? What makes Marilyn so very special?

Classical Hollywood introduced audiences to many gorgeous leading ladies. Yet while it's true that many of them are still popular, very few ever reach Monroe status. Perhaps it's that hidden pain, fragility and rich inner life that makes Miss Monroe so special.

She loved Russian classical literature, wrote interesting poetry and wanted to play one of Dostoevsky's more memorable heroines-Sonya Marmeladova. However, due to her looks and the wishes of her producers she was never allowed to play complex psychological roles. She became known as a singing, dancing, charming and glamorous, albeit somewhat naive heroine. Sex symbol status came very quickly and probably also did not help her acting career, or her personal life.

A lot has been said, written and sung about Marilyn Monroe and her life. But not many writers wish to venture into the world of "broken" Marilyn, where her perfect screen Goddess image is discarded and a true, vulnerable, sick woman emerges.

PT Rose, however, in his new play, One Night With Marilyn does just that; he boldly shows us several aspects of Marilyn's personality and lets them argue with each other.

He lets them speak of the cruel world of show business, the hardships of an actor's profession and of the incredible fragility of the human psyche.

As a director, I am honoured to present the incredible new play by PT Rose, One Night with Marilyn, at the Tea House Theatre and I very much hope to see you there.
