The show will continue in an open-ended run with Christine Ebersole and the remainder of the original Broadway cast, including Erin Davie, Matt Cavenaugh, and John McMartin. Ebersole, who won the Tony for Best Actress in a Musical, will head the show's London cast sometime during the 2007-2008 season.
Grey Gardens, based on the documentary film of the same name, tells the story of Big Edith and Little Edie Beale, a mother and daughter who ended up living as recluses in a run-down Long Island mansion. Directed by Michael Greif, the musical has a book by Doug Wright and a score by Michael Korie and Scott Frankel.
