People are saying...
"Andrea has created a terrific show about Jackie, the woman, behind the Jacqueline mythology. It proved to be thoroughly entertaining and Ms. Reese's performance was so convincing in her range and evolution from bouncy, young Jacqueline plotting to join the circus to the final gravitas during her struggle with cancer. The show and also Ms. Reese as a performer are something to keep in mind in the seasons ahead."
Michelle T, Hall, Literary Manager, The Arena Stage, Washington, DC
"We caught Andrea Reese's one-woman show Cirque Jacqueline. Cirque is a nifty bio-play about Jackie O. Reese's physical resemblance to Jackie O. is astonishing, and she's got Jackie's breathy voice down pat. Definitely a show to catch."
Jonathan Warman, Associate Editor, HX Magazine, NewYork, NY
"What an amazing show! I was particularly impressed with how deftly Andrea Reese submerged her personality into the persona of Jackie O. The writing was superb. She brought out all the contradictions of her character: her shallowness, her sweetness. I left the theatre feeling far more sympathetic to Jackie's unique place in history and her own tragic experiences. She deserves the sophisticated literary treatment given to her by Ms. Reese."

"Ms. Reese did an amazing job. She is stunning onstage. What an emotional ride!"
Stacie Theon, Actor/Playwright, New York, NY
"Andrea Reese is a great talent as a writer and as an actress. She did a fantastic job dramatizing Jackie's life. The play was funny, compelling, searing, and very moving. Ms. Reese's resemblance to Jackie is astounding. She also captured her vocal quality and aura, but made her very human, too. Everyone was wowed, as shown by the standing ovation."
Eric Weinberger, Playwright, New York, NY
"If you think you know everything about Jackie Kennedy you're wrong. Andrea Reese has expertly drawn an original and moving portrait, bringing a sometimes one-dimensional icon back to life."
