"And it is this tone that is fascinating with Esther Kuhn. Kuhn plays kittenish, eyes round as a ball, charmingly. She almost never tries to copy the Marilyn sound, she always succeeds in showing the artificiality of the character that Norma Jean has established for herself, in telling her loneliness, her hopelessness. [...] Kuhn could sing more, much more, she can do it well. At the end Kuhn's voice comes from tape. "I'm through with love."... And it is so sadly, sadly beautiful."
"Esther Kuhn plays Marilyn Monroe and speaks the recorded tapes of hers. And the actress does it very convincingly. The mind of Marylin Monroe in particular is well worked out. A one-woman-show that, throughout its approx. 70 minutes, never became long-winded – but absolutely worth seeing instead, not only for Monroe fans."
"Esther Kuhn as Lady Milford is compassionate yet calculating, but shows inner greatness at the end of the play. She gives the character her very personal note."
