    The hilarious and heartbreaking story of Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, once bright names on the social register who became East Hampton's most notorious recluses.

    "To listen to GREY GARDENS is to bring to mind two phrases seldom linked nowadays: 'Broadway musical' and 'artistic integrity.' The songs, with music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie, sustain a level of refined language and psychological detail as elevated as Stephen Sondheim's. The score is a meticulously fashioned piece of musical theater that gains in depth the more you listen to it." -NY Times.

    "The best musical of the year... GREY GARDENS blooms with creativity... Some of the most tuneful and moving songs to grace an original musical in years. Dig in and enjoy!" -USA Today.

    "GREY GARDENS is the real deal!" -NY Magazine
