"ONE OF THE GREATEST PERFORMANCES OF THE MODERN STAGE!
It is a haunting image that Sunny Thompson creates. Every nuance, every eye blink, every gorgeous gown and her walk is Marilyn. This is truly one of the greatest performances of the modern stage. Thompson has the same magnetic presence that Monroe had and is astounding in this role. The production is exemplary. The set is gorgeous with exquisite design elements."

"SUNNY THOMPSON WAS BORN TO PLAY THE ROLE
OF MARILYN MONROE...
Sunny Thompson wears the role closer than any of the iconic costumes she changes into behind a translucent screen... from face to figure, she fits the bill perfectly, but the triumph of her performance is in capturing Marilyn's enigmatic softness... totally alive but yet detached... things don't roll off her back so much as pass right through... just because a kitten is fuzzy doesn't mean she hasn't got claws!"
~ Theatre Jones, North Texas Theatre Review
Thompson does an impressive job... her resemblance to Marilyn Monroe is breathtaking... she has a lovely singing voice and has every one of Monroe's moves down pat. Thompson effortlessly moves around the all-white set, comfortably anchoring her in a dressing room, bedroom, or living room to develop a particular scene."

"SUNNY THOMPSON IS SENSATIONAL IN MARILYN: FOREVER BLONDE...
Thompson's version is uncanny... each scene enhances Thompson's abilities and as the play moves toward it's inevitable conclusion, one is drawn to appreciate how strong and yet how vulnerable the actress was in her personal life and her professional career... there is little doubt that Thompson channels the late actress better than anyone one else alive today!"
