‘With Love, Marilyn’ A one-woman tribute comes to Rio Grande Theatre


he Rio Grande Theatre, 211 N. Main St. once again welcomes actress Erin Sullivan as she presents her one-woman tribute to screen goddess Marilyn Monroe, “With Love, Marilyn,” at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 1, and 5 p.m. Saturday, June 2. Reprising the part she originated on that same stage in Mark Medoff’s “Marilee And Baby Lamb: The Assassination Of An American Goddess,” Sullivan was inspired to continue her exploration of the glamorous icon by penning this musical journey along with co-writer Stephanie Rosenberg, weaving together stories of Monroe’s life, her loves and her legacy. Monroe entertained the desire to perform live on stage again as performing for the troops in Korea was one of the happiest times in her life, according to Monroe historian, Samantha McLaughlin (“All About Marilyn” organization). In this intimate behind-thescenes evening, the audience is transported back in time to that “what if” dress rehearsal. Musical performances include “I Wanna Be Loved By You,” “My Heart Be-

Erin Sullivan as Marilyn Monroe

longs To Daddy” and “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend,” accompanied by a three-piece band with new orchestrated arrangements by Broadway musical director Henry Aronson. “Sullivan channels Monroe to deliver a performance of cheeky humor, sexy seduction and scintillating song,” said Jacquelyn Claire of the New York Theater Guide in a press release. “She looks, speaks and moves like Marilyn and it’s like going back in time.” Doors open at 6 p.m. on June 1 and 4:30 p.m. June 2.
