Celebrity TV Host - Film Critic & Reviews on KRON4-TV



News Highlights from The SF OSCAR Party was seen on KRON4 TV

while Diana Dawn as Marilyn Monroe made her grand entrance on the red carpet.


Diana Dawn IS Marilyn Monroe!

I have had the pleasure of working with Diana in many situations, from private cocktail parties, to yacht clubs

and elegant Theatre engagements. At each event people immediately react to her as if she is Marilyn Monroe.

I have seen it happen in the most intimate situations as well as in parades of tens of thousands of people.

More than a mere impression, Diana has the looks, voice, mannerisms quick wit, charm, singing style and sex appeal,
that are all in such perfect harmony with what peoples image is of Marilyn, that the moment Diana steps into the
character of Marilyn they feel as though they are witnessing something magical. Diana's presence is so reminiscent

of the legendary star, that some people have said that Marilyn's spirit is shining through Diana. Diana's talents are

matched by no-one else! She truly is the icing on the cake at every event she appears at and has been a slice of

heaven to work with. I look forward to sharing the stage with her again.

Slipping into Marilyn Monroe's Gowns

Diana Dawn was hired to appear at a Special Charity Event & Fashion Show that showcased some of Marilyn

Monroe's personal wardrobe collection, along with some of her other gowns she made famous in various films.

Diana was asked to model them and was thrilled to discover they all magically fit Diana like a glove...

Dear Diana, Thank you again for your fabulous performance at Las Trampas' "What's In Our Hat?"

event on April 27, 2008. I continue to receive comments about how great the event was and how much fun it was

to have Elvis and Marilyn Monroe and what great performers you both were. You made the event a huge success!

Thank you again. Please feel free to utilized me as a reference in the future. I would be happy to help.

Marilyn Merlot ~ Sweet as Wine

As the author of the play, I specifically wrote the role of "Marilyn Merlot" for Diana Dawn after working with her at other events.  Diana was certainly the standout in the cast, not only playing the role of Marilyn Merlot to the "T",

but also singing "Diamonds are Girls Best Friend" as "Marilyn" during the pre-dinner wine tasting.  


The guests raved about her performance. Although new to the murder mystery scene,

Diana was a natural and the guests and cast alike hope to see her in future shows around the North Bay.

Is Your Engine Running? Mine is!

Thanks Diana.  We got some great pictures of you as Marilyn with our guests.

The ones in the car turned out great. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your performance!

All my best, Karen (May 2009)



Friday Night Flicks!

Thank you for all of your time, talent and boundless energy, you truly made last Friday Night Flick

a great kickoff for 2008.  I want to send you the story printed in the Vallejo Times - Herald.

Again, and big & deep thank you and I am sure we will work together in the future.

Sincerely, Richard Miami - Film & Performance Manager

WOW-ing The Crowd!

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank each of you for working with the Hilton San Francisco for our Owners Summit. Because of your hard work and commitment, our events for the past two days came together just that much better. Talk about really wow-ing the crowd! Thank you for being so available when adjustments were needed.

It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to connect with all of you. And I know I did not have the opportunity

to say good bye and thank each of you last night, but overall our hotel staff and owners were very pleased.  
We will continue to think of you for future events. Thank you again, and best of luck with all your work!
