Table tent for Dixie's act.

Exotic World - Marilyn Monroe (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

Helendale, California

At any point in the tour of Exotic World, Dixie Evans may break into part of her classic act.

As the Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque from 1951 to 1959, her performance often paralleled events in MM's life. "After she and Joe DiMaggio split, I had a prop Yankee Dugout made, and my routine went like this..." Dixie then does her MM breathless impression, ending with "Am I worried about our breakup. No, because I've still got his..." She pulls out two imaginary baseballs -- kissing each before throwing them towards you.

If you ever wondered what Monroe would look like today, Exotic World is the place to find out.

The museum moved to Las Vegas in 2007. Dixie Evans passed away in 2013.
