Marilyn, Mom & Me
In 1956, when Marilyn Monroe was cast in the film "Bus Stop", she was the biggest star in the world. Eileen Heckart was cast as her best friend. As part of Marilyn's method acting, she was determined to make Eileen her best friend - both on screen and off. Forty-five years later, Heckart's son is trying to unravel his mother's relationship with Monroe in order to better understand his own path. Why did Mama burst into tears every time she spoke of Marilyn? This deeply personal, autobiographical play explores aspects of Marilyn Monroe and Eileen Heckart no one has ever seen.

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.
NO REFUNDS will be granted.
