LOVE IS BLONDE, according to Broadway producers who fell in love with the original English script.
“Argia Coppola’s LOVE IS BLONDE captures Marilyn Monroe’s life in an intriguing and unique way. I admire Ms. Coppola’s ingenuity in creating this piece. A young girl from an abusive background sets her sights on the impossible American dream, caught in the prowling hands of ruthless Hollywood and lusting suitors, while looking for unattainable love.”
– Daryl Roth, Broadway Producer of 7 Pulitzer-winning Plays (Clybourne Park, August: Osage County, Anna in the Tropics, Proof, Wit, How I learned to Drive, Three Tall Women), and Kinky Boots
“LOVE IS BLONDE is a clever entertaining story of Marilyn Monroe like never told before. Ms. Coppola creates a fascinating web between Marilyn and Norma Jeane that not only reveals Marilyn’s struggles, but it is both captivating and intriguing. This play is clearly Broadway bound.”
– Richard Roth, Producer (Gettin' The Band Back Together)
“The story is incredibly intriguing... I don't believe there has ever been a thought-provoking stage piece produced about Marilyn, one of America's greatest icons.... The musicals that have thus far been produced about her have been lackluster and uninspiring. […] Ms. Oates book, and your adaptation to the stage, are far more insightful. […] Your piece opened my eyes to many aspects of myself, as communicated through the challenging journey of Ms. Monroe/ Norma Jeane... which, to me, makes the piece worth your pursuing.”
– Michael Milton, Producer (Gentleman's Guide)
