Grey Gardens

Presented by Front Porch Theatricals

Fri-Sun, August 17-268 PM Evenings; 2 PM Matinees

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.

the waiting room

Presented by CORNINGWORKS the glue factory project

Wed-Sun, September 5-9

a surreal, multi-disciplinary, transcendent, dance theater work where death meets life. . .
Using the catalyst of a little known Jewish tradition, where from the moment of death until the moment of burial, a body should not be left unattended, a SHOMER (guard) is engaged to sit through the long overnight vigil.

What is it like sitting in a room alone with death for hours?

Through the integral use of creative projections, theatrical innovations, and Corning’s poignant choreographic style, this group of performing and visual artists collaboratively create a stunning, often times surreal and otherworldly experience, proffering a transcendent work that touches more on life, than on death. How can it not?
