synopsis:
“Grey Gardens” is the hilarious and heartbreaking story of Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, once bright names on the social register who became East Hampton’s most notorious recluses.  Based in part on the cult-classic documentary “Grey Gardens”, “Grey Gardens – The Musical” focuses first on the pair in 1941, when they were the cream of East Hampton society.  Behind the glittering and glamorous exterior of Grey Gardens and the family’s social whirl, we begin to see cracks in the foundations.  Act II takes place in 1973, where the pair is living reclusively among cats and raccoons in the squalor that once was Grey Gardens.
