one4review | On 08, Aug 2018
Fans of Marilyn Monroe and anyone interested in what this Hollywood icon was all about won’t be disappointed by this show. The story is well researched and provides an excellent insight to her life that includes some shocking revelations that you may or may not have been aware of.
JoJo Desmond’s performance as Marilyn is superb, showing Marilyn’s naivety and vulnerability through observations and questions that are made throughout this story. You will leave the show being even more intrigued about the mystery surrounding her untimely death.
JoJo mesmerises the audience with her sultry, sexy voice. The songs have been well selected, fitting in well with each event happening in her life. Her performance is further enhanced by the excellently choreographed dance routines and wonderful costumes.
This is an extremely well written, brilliantly performed cabaret/documentary.
