About this show

This riotous and touching Tony-nominated musical tells the story of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' eccentric relatives, Big Edie Beale and her daughter Little Edie. The two shared a dysfunctional and co-dependant relationship that dragged them from their perch atop high society to a life of squalor and isolation as East Hampton, Long Island's most notorious recluses. Based on the famous documentary of the same name, this musical offers theatrical magic: the actress who portrays the mother in the first act takes on the role of the daughter in the second. The New York Times calls Grey Gardens "an experience no passionate theatergoer should miss."
