Norma Jeane Baker of Troy
April 6 - May 19, 2019
Norma Jeane Baker of Troy is a partly spoken, partly sung performance piece by acclaimed poet, essayist, and scholar Anne Carson, intimately and powerfully staged by Katie Mitchell, who The Guardian calls “Britain’s greatest living theater director,” in The Shed’s 500-seat Theater. Golden Globe-winning actor Ben Whishaw and Grammy-winning soprano Renée Fleming star in an exploration of the lives and myths of Marilyn Monroe and Helen of Troy—iconic beauties who lived millennia apart.
