SOO CHYUN certified reviewer June 25, 2023
Writing this review was a bit challenging for me because I don't typically enjoy biographical fiction. After almost feeling nauseous while watching Netflix's "Blonde," I was hesitant to see Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis wearing Marilyn Monroe's wig and recreating "Happy birthday, Mr. President." However, I acknowledge that this issue stems from my personal preferences rather than problems with the production itself. The show is well-crafted. How do people perceive the U.S. first lady? Instead of focusing on their inner political selves, intellect, empathy, relationships, and personal lives, we tend to emphasize what they wear and how beautiful they look.

Jackie is an interesting play. Growing up knowing only about this icon through the news but hearing rumors and stories about her and her experiences made this a play I wanted to see. The dialogue of the play all done by one talented actress gives us a glimpse of the cage that Jackie lived in.

This is the kind of show I love seeing at Fringe festivals. I was completely unaware of this work and I'm thrilled to have experienced it. An intimate portrayal of an infamous woman. As if in a Charlie Kaufman movie, we are thrust through a portal into Jackie Kennedy's brain. ... full review

MANDY RUBELI certified reviewer June 11, 2023
This was a wonderful look into the mind of someone who's opinion rarely gets showcased, and I absolutely ate it up!! This show felt like it was just me and Jackie, and Jackie was spilling all her tea to me, her best friend. So fun. It was witty and thoughtful and I loved it!! ... full review
CASEY ALCOSER certified reviewer June 10, 2023
A superb, Shakespearean exploration of one of the most recognizable figures of the 20th century, and what made her so recognizable - I truly believe that this show will go down as one of the best things to come out of this year's Fringe, as well. ... full review
