Following a sold-out run in October, Cinna Productions, announces the extended limited Off-Broadway run of SIREN'S HEART – Marilyn in Purgatory, November 17-December 11. Lissa Moira directs this one-woman show, written by Walt Stepp (Only Love Will Do, Lightin' Out-A Mark Twain Musical, Why We Shot Jack-The Conspirators' Drama), about Marilyn Monroe starring Louisa Bradshaw*. Gregory Nissen serves as Musical Director & Arranger & Don Garverick choreographs. Set Design is by David "Zen" Mansley, Assistant to Mr. Mansley is Lytza Colon & Lighting Design is by William Giraldo.

SIREN'S HEART is not the familiar victim narrative about Marilyn Monroe. She is still a living icon in the hearts & minds of millions, but in her own time, Norma Jean was suffocate by the mask of Marilyn & the weight of living up to that impossible ideal of beauty, crushed her. Imagines another place where we see Marilyn, or Norma Jean, as she might have been; as she wanted to be: the well-rounded, unhaunted person she couldn't be in her all-too-brief life.

Louisa Bradshaw* has a career as an actress & chanteuse that spans the globe, starring in her own show at the premier Berlin cabaret & varieté venues, BarJeder Vernuff & the Chameleon. In NYC, she has worked with TONY Award-winning director/choreographer George Faison on If This Hat Could Talk & recently starred as the Countess Analise in the Lissa Moira/Richard West production, Who Murdered Love?

Director Lissa Moira is also a well-known playwright (Before God Was Invented, Time It Is) & the co-writer of Dead Canaries, a feature film starring Charles Durning, Dan Lauria, Dee Wallace-Stone & Joel Higgins. She is a Susan Smith Blackburn Nominee, OOBR Award Winner & a 2-time Jerome Foundation Grantee. Look for Lissa & Richard West's DaDa noir musical comedy, Who Murdered Love? Off-Broadway next season.
