Theatre Project show is about Marilyn Monroe returning from 0) grave
Too late for Halloween and too outrageous for tender sensibilities, the Theatre Project will present "Dead Marilyn," a one-man, multimedia rock opera about Marilyn Monroe returning from the grave.
The hourlong work is performed by Peter Stack, a former makeup artist, who answers protests from the Monroe estate by insisting that the character he is portraying is not Marilyn Monroe, but "Dead Marilyn -- a man with a problem."
You can judge for yourself at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., Wednesday to next Sunday at 8 p.m., Nov. 23 and 24 at 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. and Nov. 25 at 8 p.m. (Because of the mature nature of the show, there will be no matinees). Tickets are $10 to $16. For more information call 752-8558.
