HEY MARILYN is a totally original work in the ‘rock/pop opera’ style. It is a spectacular and superbly entertaining musical biography with enormous depth and insight into who Marilyn Monroe really was.

Originally commissioned, produced, and broadcast by C.B.C. Radio, HEY MARILYN was acclaimed by both critics and audience alike, and was nominated for three ACTRA awards. In the original broadcast, film and Broadway star Beverly D’Angelo played the role of Marilyn Monroe, backed up by a cast of thirty and a full orchestra. (
