About this show

Norma Jeane Baker of Troy is a spoken and sung performance piece by poet, essayist, and scholar Anne Carson (Eros the Bittersweet: An Essay, Autobiography of Red: A Novel in Verse, Nox, Float), intimately and powerfully staged by Katie Mitchell, whom the Guardian calls "Britain's greatest living theater director," in the Shed's 500-seat theater. Actor Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, The Crucible on Broadway, Mary Poppins Returns, A Very English Scandal) and soprano Renée Fleming (performances in international concert halls and opera houses; Carousel on Broadway; soundtracks for The Shape of Water, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) star in an exploration of the lives and myths of Marilyn Monroe and Helen of Troy — iconic beauties who lived millennia apart.
