Help me build my Senior Honors Project "The Four Faces of Marilyn Monroe: A Musical."
"The Four Faces of Marilyn Monroe: a Musical" is my Senior Honors Project happening in mid-April. The show, written and staring yours truly, is a jukebox musical using the songs of Marilyn Monroe to tell the story of me, a gay man, trying to explore my femininity while also trying to be accepted by society. This will be told through four different Marilyn's using four different types of Cross-Gender Performance: Impersonation, Drag, Travesty and the Chinese Dan Role. When each of these types of cross-gender performance fail to impress or be accepted, the Marilyn will change into another Marilyn that will try to find this acceptance. The use of Marilyn Monroe will not only give insight to her life and her struggles to feel accepted as a person and actress, but will also give a huge insight to my journey of coming out.
So where do you come in? Well as many people know, both putting on a show and becoming and learning the art of Drag (and other forms of Cross-Gender performance) can be very pricy! And that, combined with the college lifestyle of being poor can cause a little bit of tension...So I need your help! Any donations you provide will go toward the production: Sets, costumes, props make up and all the other crazy stuff that goes into making a show!
Thank you all so much and I hope to see you in mid-April when Marilyn will hit the stage in her many styles!
