Becoming Marilyn

* * * * *
5 stars

On stage we see the late grate phenomenon that is Marilyn Monroe. As we get to know this Icon we see more and more of Norma Jean. The question is could one ever exist without the other?

More and more as the performance progresses do we see the encroachment of Norma Jean in Marilyn’s life and the resentment Marilyn holds towards herself?

The incredible likeness between Issy van Randwyck and Ms Monroe is breathtaking and her performance of some of the stars best-remembered moments is superb.

It may be the only chance I get to be in the same room as a fantasy woman whose life will be celebrated for centuries. This candle is burning bright for the month of August in Edinburgh
