Grey Gardens, The Musical is the hilarious and heartbreaking story of Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, the peculiar aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The musical takes place at Grey Gardens, the Bouviers' mansion in East Hampton, New York and tracks the progression of the two women's lives. Trustus Art Director, Chad Henderson, states, "Our production, based on the real-life cousins of Jackie Onassis, is prefaced by the cult classic documentary of the same name from the 70's, an HBO film starring Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore, and even a parody piece featuring SNL's Bill Hader and Fred Armisen. America has long had a curiosity for these real women and their story continues to intrigue us - especially since they are part of the Camelot story and one of America's most popular political families. I can't fail to mention that it's an incredibly funny piece. We are delighted to produce it this Spring!" (more...)
