Photo Coverage: Grey Gardens Signing at Barnes & Noble


On January 11th, the cast of Grey Gardens, including stars Christine Ebersole and Mary Louise Wilson, appeared at Barnes & Noble Lincoln Triangle (1972 Broadway at 66th St.) for a performance, discussion and CD signing.

Grey Gardens, after a hit run at Playwrights Horizons, began previews at the Walter Kerr Theatre on October 3rd and opened on November 2nd.  In addition to Ebersole (42nd Street, Dinner at Eight) and Wilson (Cabaret, Full Gallop), Grey Gardens stars John McMartin, Bob Stillman, Matt Cavenaugh, Michael Potts, and sarah hyland (all from the Playwrights Horizons production), as well as Broadway newcomer Erin Davie as Young 'Little' Edie Beale, and Kelsey Fowler.

The musical features a book by Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winner Doug Wright, music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie. The show, which is directed by Tony Award nominee and Obie winner Michael Greif, "brings to life both the delightfully eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. 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 alternately hilarious and heartbreaking story of two indomitable individuals, Edith Bouvier Beale and her adult daughter 'Little' Edie," according to production notes.
