“Marilyn Monroe” in Kingston on Oscar® Night!

Join The Grand Theatre Foundation as they celebrate the 84th Annual Academy Awards® with the Annual Red Carpet Gala on at The Grand Theatre on February 26, 2012. Apparently Marilyn Monroe has made a comeback in 2012. The bombshell entertainer is finally being honoured at the Oscars® through the nomination of Michelle Williams for her spot on portrayal in My Week With Marilyn

Monroe's last banner year was in 1959 when Some Like it Hot grossed 25.1 million dollars and ranked first in 1959 as the best grossing movie of the year. Michelle Williams, recently took home the Golden Globe for her performance but will she win the gold statue come Oscar® night? Let's not forget, Meryl Streep is in the same category and hasn't won since Sophie's Choice in the early 1980s.

In celebration of Michelle Williams stunning interpretation of Marilyn Monroe, the Red Carpet Gala Committee has invited the top Marilyn Monroe impersonator in Canada to make her Kingston premiere appearance at the Third Annual Red Carpet Gala Event. She will be doing meet and greet sessions, with photo opportunities and guests attending this spectacular event will get the rare chance to see Marilyn who will vocally perform a couple of her well admired songs.

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental,
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.
A kiss may be grand but it, Won't pay the rental on your humble flat, Or help you at the automat.”

-Marilyn Monroe singing Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend

Those are the famous lyrics from Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend, a song featured in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. This lasting, unforgettable song was sung by the beautiful, late Marilyn Monroe and is most often associated with the famous celebrity icon.
