"There are some nice people in the world, you know, I just don’t happen to be related to any of them.” – Little Edie

Based on the 1975 documentary of the same name, "Grey Gardens" is a funny, poignant and moving musical that introduces us to Little Edie Beale and her mother, Big Edie. Once part of high society and courted by Howard Hughes and J. Paul Getty, Little Edie lives proudly with her mother in abject poverty and filth in a twenty-eight room dilapidated mansion with innumerable cats and racoons.

Witness the spectacular life and decline of Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Little Edie, with the same actress playing the mother role in Act One, and the daughter role in Act Two.

 "Can a musical be hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time? GREY GARDENS can! Here's that shot in the arm for theater lovers who've been longing for something bold, haunting and hypnotic to get lost in…Doug Wright's book is nuanced and compassionate…the original score by Scott Frankel and Michael Korie has the power to live in your head long after you leave the theater…GREY GARDENS is more than a unique and unmissable musical: It's a gift." —Rolling Stone Magazine

Meet the Real Edie Beale!
