Performing for the troops in Korea was one of the happiest times in her life, according to Monroe historian, Samantha McLaughlin (‘All About Marilyn’ Organization). In this intimate behind-the-scenes evening, we are transported back in time to that 'what if' dress rehearsal, as Marilyn prepares to entertain you. Audiences will fall in love all over again with Marilyn, watching Sullivan's tribute portrayal of the famed sex goddess you know and love, performing classic songs such as “I Wanna Be Loved By You,” “My Heart Belongs To Daddy,” and “Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend,” accompanied by a three-piece band with new orchestrated arrangements by one of Broadway's finest musical directors Henry Aronson (“Rock of Ages,” “Tommy”).

“With Love, Marilyn” ™ stars Erin Sullivan as Marilyn Monroe in a special one-woman tribute performance to one of the most iconic romantic ingenues.

“Erin Sullivan embodies a real Marilyn in an honest and painstakingly, historically accurate portrayal of the screen icon. Ms. Sullivan wraps her arms around the audience and brings them into her one woman show with laughter and heartbreaking silence.” - Samantha McLaughlin, Co-Founder of 'All About Marilyn' Organization

PRODUCER | CREATIVE TEAM


ERIN SULLIVAN (Marilyn Monroe) built her career playing the favorite blonde bombshells of the musical theatre repertoire. Sullivan developed and originated the role of Marilyn Monroe in a new play Marilee & Baby Lamb: The Assassination of an American Goddess by Tony Award-winning playwright Mark Medoff which premiered at the Rio Theater in Las Cruces, New Mexico. In June 2017 she made her directorial debut in a production of Grease at the Palace Theater in Wisconsin. Sullivan also appeared in the developmental lab of a new musical Hazel: A Maid in America directed by the legendary Lucie Arnaz and choreographed by Chet Walker. Sullivan has performed around the country in the national tours of Hairspray as Amber Von Tussle in over 300 performances, as Frenchy in Grease, and in The Wedding Singer and Shrek. In 2014, she released her first book Theatrical Baggage: a manual, workbook, and bible on how to survive a National Tour and Other Gigs. In the book, she imparts her expertise regarding life on the road to actors of the next generation. Sullivan attended the esteemed American Musical and Dramatic Academy.

RAVES | REVIEWS


“Sullivan channels Monroe to deliver a performance of cheeky humor, sexy seduction, and scintillating song. 'Some Like It Hot,' but Sullivan likes it steaming. Erin Sullivan has observed Marilyn Monroe like a wax artist from Madame Tussauds. She has scrutinized every detail, every gesture, every coquettish glance to portray the complexity of this icon. She looks, speaks, and moves like Marilyn, and it’s like going back in time.” - Jacquelyn Claire, NY Theater Guide

“Erin Sullivan bubbles and sparkles like vintage champagne in “With Love, Marilyn.” - Richard Ridge, BroadwayWorld.com

“Erin Sullivan IS Marilyn in 'With Love, Marilyn.'” - Douglas Denoff, Broadway Producer
