WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe comes to life on stage in a one-woman musical coming to Thalian Hall.

Wilmington native, Erin Sullivan, who plays Marilyn, joined us on WECT News First at Four Thursday.

The show, With Love, Marilyn, opens Friday, Oct. 13 at Thalian’s Main Stage.

The musical explores the actress’s struggles behind her very public persona.

Sullivan is the co-producer, co-writer, and star of the show.

The show will be a homecoming for Sullivan, who has traveled the country in five Broadway tours including Hairspray, Shrek, and Grease.

With Love, Marilyn premiered earlier this year in New York City.

Thalian Hall is the production’s first stop before going on tour.

Tickets are available at www.thalianhall.org.
