The news was broken by Norma Jeane: The Musical’s Twtter feed, which announced:

Its official Kerry Katona ‪@KerryKatona7 will be Marilyn Monroe in ‘Norma Jeane The Musical’

The show’s writer Belvedere Pashun, who previously wrote Wag – The Musical said of Katona:

“I needed an actor of huge talent, personality and experience – Kerry was at the top of my list.

This show will change the shape of people’s perceptions of Marilyn Monroe, and we expect to announce a new star of drama on stage and screen with Kerry’s performance.”

Kerry said:

‘I’m thrilled to have been given this opportunity to play one of the world’s biggest female icons and can’t wait to get to work. A successful career in drama has always been a main goal of mine and this role is a challenge but one I’m going to grab with both hands.’

The show is due to open sometime after the end of September 2013.

Marilyn Monroe was voted a gay icon by the writers of TheGayUK in May.
