Grey Gardens is a frequently funny, tragic and utterly unforgettable musical about two “staunch” and legendary American women – Edith Bouvier Beale, and her grown daughter, Edie. The Beales were Jacqueline Kennedy’s aunt and cousin, respectively. Set at Grey Gardens, the Bouviers’ mansion in East Hampton, Long Island, the musical weaves documentary text with imaginative speculation to trace the Beales’ journey from royalty to ruin. With a diverse musical songbook, including Tin Pan Alley jigs and soaring ballads, Grey Gardens is a unique tapestry of lost dreams, sacrifice, and unstoppable hope– heartfelt, witty, and compassionate.
