Cabaret singer Marissa Mulder will perform Fragments of Marilyn, a unique tribute blending music from past and present with Marilyn’s own words, at the Gaslight Theatre in St Louis, Missouri tonight and tomorrow (March 18-19), reports STLPublicRadio.
“Marissa Mulder, a cabaret singer, will perform a tribute to Marilyn Monroe in a variety of styles. She said she drew inspiration to do so from a photograph.
‘There was just something about her eyes in the photograph that registered with me,’ Mulder said.
Her performance is unusual in that the music is from all over the place…and different from the style you might normally see in a cabaret club.
‘I’ll be singing songs from Alanis Morissette to George Gershwin to Noel Coward to Nine Inch Nails to Tom Waits,’ Mulder said. ‘It is a musical journey about Marilyn’s life. All of the spoken-word in the show are Marilyn’s words from diaries, recipes, hotel stationery. It is chronicling her inner feelings from joy to sadness.'”
