Tucson, Arizona Published: 01.01.2009

Tucson's Invisible Theatre will present the Southwest premiere of "Marilyn: Forever Blonde" Jan. 10-11 at the Berger Performing Arts Center.

To help prime the pump for the stage show, IT and the Loft Cinema have cooked up an event called "Gentlemen Prefer Marilyn: A Marilyn Monroe Celebration."

The one-night-only event, at 7:30 Wednesday, will include a costume contest, trivia and a screening of the classic 1953 comedy "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," in which Monroe sings "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend." Admission is $6.
