Cirque Jacqueline, a revealing one-woman play about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Cirque Jacqueline is written and performed by Andrea Reese, and directed by Charles Messina. Performances take place December 18th and 19th, 2008 at 7:30pm. The Players Theatre Loft is located at 115 MacDougal Street in NYC. Following the suggestion of acclaimed director Jim Simpson, Andrea Reese combined her theatrical experience with extensive research on Jackie O. and a startling resemblance to the icon to create Cirque Jacqueline, a riveting drama. In Cirque Jacqueline, we meet the real Jackie who hid beneath a carefully constructed public persona. The play covers Jackie’s childhood with a womanizing father and abusive mother, her joys and struggles within her marriage to Jack Kennedy, her trauma during and after the assassination, her scandalous marriage to Aristotle Onassis and her blossoming interests and loves during the last decades of her life. PRAISE FOR CIRQUE JACQUELINE: “Andrea Reese channels Jackie O. in this one-woman show. The upshot is a character of both charm and substance.” ~ The New Yorker “Andrea Reese is the quintessential Jackie and channels the former first lady down to the last detail.” ~ The Journal News (Gannett) “Amazing…Very authentic, very real.” ~ CBS-TV News “An absorbing one-woman show. Cirque Jacqueline promises and delivers a circus, but it’s the quietly dignified solo act in the center ring that’s most memorable.” ~ The Boston Globe “Cirque Jacqueline is magnifique! A moving and most impressive performance.” ~ Back Stage
