Yes Sabine, it's Sardi's Restaurant at Susan's 18th Birthday on May 22, 1956.

Mandy has already posted the photo from the Anne Frank Play and here are some more I have.

The one with Laurence Olivier is before filming The Prince and the Showgirl.

Pictures from the opening night of Anne Frank at Cort Theater are from Oct. 5th, 1955. Please correct me, if I'm wrong!

Hello....thank you so much for helping out....
Ok, let's make some sense of this: Susan strasberg's birthday party at Sardi's May 22nd 1956...FINALLY SOLVED!!! That made me very happy.. ;-)
Ok, unto the other pics...the one with Lawrence Olivier is from february 1956....
Then there is the one with susan strasberg in a black turtleneck and Marilyn in the black dress with thin straps from the opening of "anne frank" in oct. 1955.....
Now there is only one left to identify....look closely.....there's susan in a white dress and marilyn in a black dress WITHOUT straps....where and when???
It looks like the same room as the "anne frank" pics, doesn't it???
I will post both so we can compare.....

Ok, this is definetly from the opening of 'Anne frank"...marilyn is wearing the dress with straps and susan is in the black turtleneck.
Attached File 1955_Oct05_Anne_Frank_Play_1_1_.jpg ( 10.17K )Number of downloads: 91

As you can see, Marilyn is in a strapless dress (i have more photos of marilyn arriving for this occasion and she's definetly in a strapless dress) and Susan is in a white dress....susan could have changed into the black turtleneck from this dress, sure...but marilyn changing dresses,too??? Doubt it....
What do we make of this??

OMG...i am such a knucklehead.....i searched all the available pics and noticed that in the pics where Marilyn wears the "strapless' dress, the straps are actually hanging off her shoulders....isn't that silly?? Lololol....i never noticed it before.
Ok, susan strasberg changed out of the white dress/slip into the black turtleneck after her performance of "anne frank".....

Sabine, are all your questions answered (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/hmm.gif) ? If you say so, I would mark it as solved (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/wink3.gif)

So there are three dates
1. May 22, 1955 -- Susan's Birthday Party at Sardi's.
2. Oct. 5, 1955 -- Broadway Opening of The Diary of Anne Frank.
3. February 9, 1956 -- After the Prince and the Showgirl Press
Conference, attended The Diary of Anne Frank

**btw -- Marilyn couldn't have been at Susan's B. Day Party at Sardi's on May 22, 1956 as she was still in Hollywood filming Bus Stop. She didn't return to New York until June 2, 1956.

Does this sound right?!

I've looked until I am blue in the face, but I can't find anything about the birthday party, other than a captioned photo, in SusanStrasberg's book. Does anyone know where the reference to the birthday party would be in her book?

Sabine, here is another photo of Marilyn, Susan and Lee Strasberg together at the Sardi's Restaurant. This picture came from the Marilyn and the Camera Book and has dated it to 1956. I only posted the pic because you asked for pics of them together (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/wink3.gif)

Hi...thanks for posting that last pic....i have it actually but i am glad you posted it....that was taken in October 1955 (the book it was in mistakingly labeled it as 1956)....
Ok, on to the pic from 'susan's birthday party'.....well, i am totally sure that it couldn't have been taken then because of Marilyn's hairstyle.....and also because Marilyn was in Hollywood working on 'bus stop', as above mentioned....
So, did Marilyn actually attend Susan's birthday party in May 1956?
And.....when exactly was the pic taken of Marilyn in the highneck black dress and susan?

I read the Susan Strasberg's book.I think that Marilyn was such a sister for Susan.I think that she (Marilyn ) was more fragile that Susan, and she support her. (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/mmmaf_116.gif)

Quick update.....the pics with susan in the dressing room and at Sardi's were indeed taken Oct. 5th 1955....in one pic in the dressing room is a bald man with glasses and a bowtie laughing with susan strasberg while marilyn sits off to the right...that's susan's godfather.....
He can be seen sitting next to Marilyn at the backtable at Sardi's with susan sitting at a table up front (in a black turtleneck), with her father Lee Strasberg in a striped tie next to her on one side and director Joshua Logan (bus stop) in a mustache and bow tie on the other side...
The pics of Marilyn and susan holding the artwork was actually not taken on susan's 18th birthday on May 22nd 1956....Marilyn was still working on BUS STOP in Hollywood and didn't return to New York untill June 2nd '56....susan strasberg talks about this herself in one of her books....how Marilyn and Paula strasberg would call every night from L.A. to speak to Lee Strasberg during this time....the pics were taken sometime between June and mid-july '56 (when Marilyn left for England)....
