Monmouth Community Players Stage GREY GARDENS, Now thru Feb 8

Rub elbows with Jackie O's scandalous relatives, as Monmouth Community Players presents GREY GARDENS, the three-time Tony Award-winning musical.

Meet Edith "Big Edie" Bouvier Beale and her daughter, Edith "Little Edie" Beale -- once the highest of high society, who became East Hampton's most notorious recluses, living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion with 51 cats, cobwebs and virtually no plumbing. Set in two eras -- 1941, when the celebrated estate was the picture of wealth and sophistication, and 1975, after it had been reduced to squalor -- GREY GARDENS is the hilarious and heartbreaking look at two fascinating women and the love between a mother and daughter.

Rebecca Beck does double duty as Edith Bouvier Beale (in Act One) and "Little Edie" Beale (in Act Two). Joining her on stage (as Edith in Act Two), MCP's own Jeanne Fletcher. The cast also includes: Melissa Bills as Young "Little" Edie Beale, Paul G. Caron as George Gould Strong, Tyler Beck as Joseph Kennedy, Jr., David Marshal as Major Bouvier and Norman Vincent Peale, Hannah Perreault as Jacqueline "Jackie" Bouvier, Alexa Reddy as Lee Bouvier, and Glenn Atkins as Brooks, Sr and Brooks, Jr. GREY GARDENS is directed by Adam P. Blais, with Rebecca Caron serving as Music Director.

The show is based on the 1975 documentary by Albert & David Maysles, and features a book by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Doug Wright, music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie. MCP's production of GREYGARDENS runs Jan 31st - Feb 8th (Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 2pm) at the beautiful historic Cumston Hall (796 Main Street, Monmouth).
