  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF THE JACKIE LOOK

    Karen Finley Wears Pearls, Not Chocolate

    BEN BRANTLEY

    February 12, 2010: The prospect of Karen Finley doing dinner theater sounds as remote as her singing “God Bless America” at a memorial tribute to Senator Jesse Helms. Yet Ms. Finley — who achieved national notoriety two decades ago when she drew the wrath of Helms for her publicly financed activities as a performance artist — can now be found on Saturday nights practicing her very personal brand of drama before an audience of scallop- and steak-consuming patrons.

    The Jackie Look

    Dan Bacalzo

    February 5, 2010: After tackling the iconic persona of Liza Minnelli in her 2003 show Make Love, performance art provocateur Karen Finley turns her attention to another famous celebrity in her latest work, The Jackie Look, now playing on Saturday evenings at the Laurie Beechman Theatre. But while this examination into the life, legend, and legacy of the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is often intriguing, it doesn't quite succeed in theatrical terms.

  • BACKSTAGE REVIEW OF THE JACKIE LOOK

    The Jackie Look

    Jason Fitzgerald

    February 1, 2010: "The Jackie Look" is performance artist Karen Finley's vision of what Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis would say if she were to visit Earth for a one-night-only presentation. Not surprisingly, in Finley's imagination, Jackie has developed a radical self-awareness of her appropriation as a public image of grief and womanhood. In other words, she sounds an awful lot like Karen Finley.

    Jackie O via Karen Finley: The Jackie Look Review

    Jonathan Mandell

    February 7, 2010: If “The Jackie Look” looks to be a parody of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the embodiment of American grace, by Karen Finley — wasn’t she the performance artist who smeared her breasts with chocolate? – it’s best to look again…and then a third time.

    A Brief History of Co-Opted Images in The Jackie Look

    Andy Propst

    February 9, 2010: Anyone who has ever rolled their eyes at—or felt pangs of revulsion from—the trinkets and commemorative items sold near Ground Zero will find they're on Karen Finley's side during her new show, The Jackie Look, in which she assumes the persona of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who has returned to Earth for a one-night-only lecture about the way we co-opt images of tragic events and their aftermath to grieve individually and collectively.
