Marilyn and the Dazzling Divas

As London’s theatres reopen, Marilyn’s musical legacy is showcased alongside five other iconic (and tragic) women entertainers in Dazzling Divas, a cabaret starring actress and singer Issy Van Randwyck, at the Jermyn Street Theatre until this Sunday, June 20, as part of the Footprints Festival. (If you can’t make the show in person, a streaming option is also available.) “Her breathy Monroe begins to incorporate Marilyn’s own words as well as her sad life story,” Maryam Philpott writes for Reviews Hub, “which returns some sense of agency to the music, particularly in ‘Running Wild’ when the actress launches her own production company, while ‘River of No Return’ captures the loneliness of her final years.”
