AUDIO: Rachel York, J. Robert Spencer & More Sing from ME AND MISS MONROE
"Me and Miss Monroe" starring Rachel York as Marilyn Monroe, features a book and lyrics by Charles Leipart and music by William Goldstein. "Me and Miss Monroe" was directed at Amas Musical Theatre by John Rando, choreographed by Christopher Gatelli, and presented in association with Chase Mishkin. Check out two songs from the show below!
"Me and Miss Monroe" tells the story of Steven, a 16-year-old Bronx Science High School student who in 1962 inadvertently meets and befriends Marilyn Monroe at the carousel in Central Park. As Steven discusses with Miss Monroe his work on his project for a national science fair, they both discover they have much in common, including their interest in Atomic Theory. Taking place during the last six months of the screen star's glamorous yet tumultuous life, "Me and Miss Monroe" explores and honors the lasting impact that this all-too-human goddess of the silver screen made on individuals and the world.
The first video features York singing "When the Camera Isn't There," a beautiful and haunting ballad that reveals the insecure young woman inside the iconic movie star. The second, "Me and Miss Monroe," is a stirring compilation of songs featuring vocals by York as Marilyn, Robb Sapp and Spencer Wilson as Steven, and J. Robert Spencer as Frank Sinatra.
More than 50 years after her tragic death at the age of 36, the aura of Marilyn Monroe still endures. Through these videos, the tender story of "Me and Miss Monroe" - and Rachel York's exquisite performance as the inimitable star - will be preserved, as well.
