Based on a true story, and the famous cult documentary, Grey Gardens is a musical exploration of the American dream gone wrong and what it means to become a social pariah.
In 1975, filmmakers Albert and David Maysles brought their cameras into the crumbling, palatial estate of Edith Bouvier Beale (the aunt of Jackie Kennedy) and her daughter, Little Edie. There they found two women ostracized from their community, hanging on to reality by a thread, and surrounded by dozens of cats and raccoons.
Grey Gardens, The Musical examines both the back-story of this fascinating family, and the fate they couldn’t possibly have imagined. Featuring an intimate, musical score that borrows as much from Stephen Sondheim as the eras in which it is set, Grey Gardens is the perfect chamber musical.
Featuring: Heather Orth, Mary Gibboney, Juliana Lustenader, David Brown, Nathan Brown, Dave Sikula, Nandi Drayton, Gabrielle Jarvie, and CC Sheldon
