TONY ET MARILYN
Play by Jean Philippe Bêche
Directed by Olivier Macé
With Maud Baecker as Marylin,
and Kevin Levy as Tony.
This play is about the first meeting between Marilyn Monroe and Tony Curtis in the
early 1950s, eight years before their reunion on the set of “Some Like It Hot.”
This story, based on true facts, is a work of fiction.
We will never know what really happened during those interviews, those evenings,
But we mostly discover a few things on Norma Jean Baker, before her
metamorphosis, before Marilyn, just before the dream began…
It is the secret reason of this project success.
The idea is to get as close as possible to the real characters, both in their physical
and psychological similarities. But very importantly, it is not about look-alikes. Only
through their truth and their acting will we witness an exceptional incursion into
the privacy of Tony and Marilyn.
Thanks to the work of Laurence Lustyk, the casting director, Maud Baecker, Kevin
Levy and Marie Vincent have already convinced us.
