In her first American production, Austrian Nobel Prize-winning playwright ruminates on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ life as an icon in American history and pop culture. But critics aren't sure whether the play hits its mark. While some believe that the one-woman show delivers new critiques on femininity and power, others think the material rambles on and gets tiring. In the title role, though, Tina Benko receives nothing but praise. While her depiction of Jackie strays from a true biographical impression, this matches Jelinek’s attempt to deconstruct Jackie the icon, not Jackie the woman. The critics also appreciate Téa Alagic’s direction, believing that Marsha Ginsburg’s swimming pool set allow both Alagic and Benko to shine. While critics repeatedly call the play itself “experimental” and wonder whether everyone will enjoy Jelinek’s work, they think that the production makes the experience worthwhile.
