After a successful first outing at Ye Olde Rose and Crowne in 2015, Norma Jeane: The Musical transfers to the LOST Theatre this month, with new songs from country star Ali Isabella (#1 Billboard Country Hot Singles Sales Chart) and Andy Street (composer for American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance).
Showing a side of Marilyn Monroe that to many is still a mystery, the show casts a beady eye on the dark side of fame and fortune. The show opens on 30th May, running until 18th June.
Plot: In the dark days of 1961, 18 months before she died, Marilyn Monroe was sent to a psychiatric unit when she thought she was being sent to a spa for rest and relaxation. This fascinating musical charts the three days she spent there. As she begins coming off the drink and drugs that had become the norm in her Hollywood lifestyle, her mind starts wandering between past and present. Her hallucinations draw the audience into the chaos of her mind and darkly foreshadow the tragedy that is soon to come.
The cast will be announced shortly.
