Some Like It Cold

March 25, 2015

My thoughts on the U.S. premiere (and second production of) Marilyn Forever by Gavin Bryars. I am disappointed that my description of an obscene phone caller “twanging his telephone wire” was edited out.

"This opera isn't working. Hey, I know! Let's have two Marilyn Monroes instead of just one!"
