Siren's Heart...Norma Jean and Marilyn Monroe in Purgatory - 2012 - Off-Broadway

$39.50 - $69.50

SIREN'S HEARTis 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.
