Here is a hilarious theatrical cartoon about Jackie Kennedy from which only its heroine emerges unscathed. Her life is presented as a fractured fairy tale of deliriously affectionate satire.
"One of the most irreverent shows to come to Broadway in quite a while.... Jackie is satire with respect!" - WNBC-TV

"Gip Hoppe has a real talent for comic lampoon." - New York Times

"A complete delight ... done with such heart and high comedy that you may not want to leave the theatre." - The New Yorker

"Worthy of Monty Python." - New York Post

"Wonderful and inventive." - Newsday

"Terrific fun!" - New York Daily News

"A clever cartoon caper ... [with] screwball staging and glib caricaturing." - Newark Star-Ledger

"It's nothing short of brilliant." - Boston Herald

Jackie: An American Life premiered at the Academy Playhouse in New Orleans, Massachusetts inn 1992.
