About the show

A sensual and fun-loving one-woman tribute performance celebrating the iconic ingenue and the loves of her life. More…

From the show:

Marilyn Monroe was the ultimate romantic. Lovers come and go in this musical journey "With Love, Marilyn," 

This show pays homage to the many loves and romances in the life of Monroe, in a what-if scenario of performing in Las Vegas - fulfilling a wish that sadly Monroe never got to do

This performance will feature the talents of Alexandra Muscaro portraying Monroe - performing your favorite songs - such as "I Wanna Be Loved By You," "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", and "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend," while weaving the love stories behind the many men in Monroe's life. The show features new arrangements by Henry Aronson, one of Broadway's finest musical directors ("Rock of Ages," "Tommy")

"With Love, Marilyn" will transport you back in time in an intimate behind-the-scenes evening with the immortal goddess you know and love, as she prepares to entertain you.

Banal, Entertaining, Great singing, Slow, Disappointing

See it if you want a brief biographical review of Marilyn's romantic relationships interspersed with a dozen of the songs she is known for, sung well.

Don't see it if if you know Marilyn or have seen good impersonators. The physical features, wig, costume and sound of voice fall short of the icon.

Banal, Disappointing, Insipid, Slow, Great singing

See it if you are unfamiliar with and want to learn Norma Jean’s romantic biography and emotional arc through songwriting, are nostalgic about Marilyn

Don't see it if you do not like solo, especially solo woman cabaret, shows with lesser talent than Liza Minnelli, sitting in cramped cafe seat 1 hr+,

Also Promising premise. More depth plunge and insight into Marilyn’s emotio... Read more Read less

See it if Mediocre Impression of an icon at best.

Don't see it if Just skip it!

Fluffy, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if You are a fan of Marilyn and remember some of her music.

Don't see it if You like musicals performed by more than one actor

69
Hard to score, Fluffy, Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if You are a Marilyn Monroe's fan. It's hard to impersonate such an iconic person. It's very easy to be perceived overdoing it. Not so bad 😉

Don't see it if You couldn't care less about the actress.

Also It may be easier to have someone to interact with, such as a pianist ,... Read more Read less

Disappointing

See it if you have no serious expectations about Marilyn's biography. Promising performance which has little support from the production.

Don't see it if you love Marilyn but feel offended by lack of drama which was central in her life. Bad direction and a superficial story-line annoy you.

Fluffy, Entertaining

Don't see it if you didn't like Marilyn

Indulgent, Disappointing, Insipid

See it if It wasn’t a great show, the solo singer has a good voice but wasn’t utilized well.

Don't see it if Sitting in a cramp space, watching a so-so show, and have to pay minimum Two Items food + drinks is not a good way to spend your 90 min time

52
Disappointing, Cliched

See it if seemed a bit like Marilyn with the blond wig and some gestures

Don't see it if you expect a good singer, someone who eventually would wear the classic red dress and had better dialogue

58
Excruciating, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You don’t know a thing about Marilyn Monroe and you are curious

Don't see it if You are a true Marilyn fan . Definitely misses the mark

83
Enchanting, Clever, Great acting, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You want to know more about the dual persona of Marilyn/Norma-Jean and hear 12 of her songs sung very well. This is a one woman musical show

Don't see it if You are expecting lavish broadway sets and dance routines. Don’t understand other reviewers comments - this/she was very good.

73
Disappointing, Cliched, Dated, Indulgent, Entertaining

See it if you're a fan of Marilyn Monroe and are familiar with her history and life story. It's a one woman show and feels like a cabaret revue.

Don't see it if you want to see a traditional show with several actors and a narrative story. This is a club revue staged as dress rehearsal or a show.

58
Disappointing, Cliched, Banal

See it if you want to revisit some autobiographical information about Marilyn Monroe and hear some songs associated with her.

Don't see it if you want to see a performer who looks and sounds like Marilyn Monroe.

20
Overrated, Insipid, Disappointing, Dated, Banal

See it if You can't purchase any Marilyn CDs or films.

Don't see it if You want good singing or a well written script. I hate to be negative,but this was amateur night. Marilyn would cringe.Sorry to be negative!

Don't see it if If you don’t like Marilyn Monroe or you don’t appreciate the trials that she went through.

Slow, Clever, Entertaining, Absorbing, Relevant

See it if You prefer more intimate shows and venues... and, of course, if you are interested in Marilyn Monroe.

Don't see it if You are looking for a large Broadway style production.

Good singing voice, Poorly acted, Poorly written, Slow, Disappointing

See it if Other than her good singing voice I saw no redeeming qualities in this show.

Don't see it if You enjoy Broadway or Cabaret or if you loved Marilyn.
