Why See Onassis?
Aristotle Onassis, millionaire at 25.
Inspired by the true story of the relationships between Onassis, his lover Maria Callas and wife Jackie Kennedy, this is an extraordinary account of one man's voracious appetite for sex, money and power - how those with great wealth and political influence live their lives detached from the moral code and realities of ordinary mortals.
Robert Lindsay stars as Onassis alongside a stellar cast. First performed to great acclaim at Chichester's Minerva Theatre, this explosive new play by Martin Sherman opens in the West End at the Novello Theatre this September for a strictly limited season.
Previews from: 30 September 2010
Opening night: 12 October 2010
Onassis contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature and is suitable for audiences aged 16 and upwards.
