The Chichester Festival Theatre production in association with Derby Live is presented in London by Aukin/Vogel for DAP Ltd, Playful Productions, Act Productions and Bob Bartner.

This is the true story of the relationships between Aristotle Onassis, his lover Maria Callas, his wife Jackie Kennedy and his long running feud with the Kennedy family and the American establishment.
An extraordinary account of one manís voracious appetite for sex, money and power Ė how those with great wealth and political influence live their lives detached from the moral code and realities of ordinary mortals.

It was a complete mess last year as "Aristocrats". I understand there has been very little re-writing and the egos of Meckler/ Sherman/ Lindsay are stopping progress.

It was a very unhappy production, as signalled by the change of leading lady!

They hated Elizabeth McGovern- apparently she was only cast for her looks.

At one point late in rehearsals the entire studio was cleared so that Ms Meckler, (no sweet heart herself) could have a showdown with the struggling star. It became very heated!

From what I hear, the play needs more than a title change, (sorry, it was "Aristos"), but it ain't happening. This show is being driven by RL's desire to return to the West End.

I'm glad it's not a musical, it looks like it would make a fantastic play.

Why not? is it because you dont know the subject matter or just not interested in it?
