GREY GARDENS: A NEW MUSICAL
Based on the spooky Maysles brothers' documentary film about Jackie Kennedy's two reclusive relatives, this musical is about Aunt Edie (Mary Louise Wilson) and cousin "Little Edie" (Christine Ebersole), who live together in a rundown 28-room East Hampton mansion. The show looks back at a storied past from their cluttered, slightly crazy present, with a book by Doug Wright (2004 Pulitzer Prize winner for I Am My Own Wife), music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie. Rent's Michael Greif directs.
Playwrights Horizons Mainstage Theater, 416 W. 42nd St., (212) 279-4200. Previews start Feb. 3. Opens Feb. 26.
