Grey Gardens

Closed July 29, 2007

Possibly the greatest performance I've ever seen in a musical. Chirstine Ebersole's performance, a pearl of incalculable price, is one of the most gorgeous ever to grace a musical. Mary Louise Wilson gives a touching, fiercely naturalistic performance.

Why See Grey Gardens?

The much-lauded musical about mother-daughter eccentrics Big Edie and "Little" Edie Beale transfers to Broadway with original cast members Christine Ebersole and Mary Louise Wilson.

The incredible story of Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s most outrageous relatives, Grey Gardens brings to life her delightfully eccentric aunt and cousin. Once among the brightest names in the pre-Camelot social register, these two women became East Hampton’s most notorious recluses, living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion.

Set in two eras - in 1941 when the estate was in its prime and in 1973 when it was reduced to squalor - the musical tells the alternately hilarious and heartbreaking story of two indomitable individuals. Based on the film by David Maysles, Albert Maysles, Ellen Hovde, Muffie Meyer and Susan Froemke.

Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole plays mother Edith Bouvier Beale in Act 1 and her daughter "Little" Edie in Act 2. Tony Award nominee Mary Louise Wilson plays mother Edith in Act 2.

For her dual perfomance in Grey Gardens, leading lady Christine Ebersole won an incredible 5 awards: a Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Obie Award, special citation from the New York Drama Critics Circle and the Drama League’s 2006 Distinguished Performance of the Year Award.
