What you know about Jackie Kennedy Onassis is obvious. She was the high profiled wife of one of the most famous and infamous presidents in US history. She was a glamorous symbol of her time and an icon of her century. Her mystique has triggered an abundance of books and movies, not to mention a hoard of rumors and theories about her life.
So it would be natural to think you know Jackie. But do you really?
In Andrea Reese's Cirque Jacqueline, Jackie becomes unmasked in the literal and figurative sense for the first time. Written from over a decade of research, Reese constructed the play to cover Jackie's childhood with a womanizing father and abusive mother, her struggles with her marriage to Jack Kennedy, her scandalous marriage to Aristotle Onassis, and her blossoming interests and loves during the last decades of her life.
