It is 1962 and Marilyn Monroe is in the midst of a photo shoot. She is 36 years old and while she is still beautiful, she has lost a little of the girlish charm that made her Hollywood's biggest star in the 20th Century Fox prime of her early twenties. Divorced for a third time and living alone, frustrated by Hollywood and tired of the label ''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.

What makes this telling of the life of Marilyn Monroe is that it is told in her own words, based on extensive research. This time you really feel that Marilyn is up there on the stage. And you know what, you really believe that she is right there in front of you. It is a haunting image that Sunny Thompson creates.

''One of the greatest performances of the modern stage.'' San Francisco Online Daily News
