Norma Jeane Baker of Troy is a partly spoken, partly sung performance piece by poet, essayist, and scholar Anne Carson (Eros the Bittersweet: An Essay; Autobiography of Red: A Novel in Verse; Nox; Float), intimately and powerfully staged by Katie Mitchell, who The Guardian calls "Britain's greatest living theater director," in The Shed's 500-seat theater. Actor Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, The Crucible on Broadway, Mary Poppins Returns, A Very English Scandal) and soprano Renee Fleming (performances in international concert halls and opera houses; Carousel on Broadway; soundtracks for The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) star in this exploration of the lives and myths of Marilyn Monroe and Helen of Troy - iconic beauties who lived millenia apart.
