Based on the 1975 Maysles Brothers Films’“Grey Gardens.” The 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 story of two indomitable individuals.

For The Record:

“Grey Gardens” had its World Premiere at Playwrights Horizons on Mar 7, 2006.
