Play Jackie O in a One-Woman Equity Drama in L.A.

One talented actor is sought for what could be considered a role of a lifetime. “Jackie Unveiled,” a one-woman drama about the life of Jackie Kennedy Onassis that intends to “peek behind the façade of America's most private public figure,” will hold Equity Principal Auditions in Los Angeles for the title role. Naturally, for a role like this, the bar for prospective talent is set incredibly high. The female actor, aged 18 or older, must be able to portray the first lady at the ages of both 38 and 64; at the former age, “a sophisticated, sexually manipulative, fiercely protective mother,” and at the latter attempting to “put her life in perspective as she faces her own mortality.” The team, which includes the drama’s writer Tom Dugan and director Jenny Sullivan, will see talent Sept. 26 in Beverly Hills, California. There will be an initial workshop Dec. 4–9, with rehearsals slated to begin Jan.
