"More than a unique and unmissable musical: it’s a gift.”
From Squabbalogic, producers of the sell-out smash independent musicals Carrie and The Drowsy Chaperone.
Adapted from the cult classic 1975 cult documentary by Pulitzer Prize Winning playwright Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife) and songwriters Scott Frankel and Michael Korie, the darkly thrilling, quirky and heart-breaking lives of Jackie Kennedy’s reclusive aunt and cousin hits the stage in this Sydney première production.
Exploring the dysfunctional relationship between former socialite Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter, Little Edie, as they languish in the derelict East Hampton manor known as Grey Gardens, this award-winning Broadway musical is a feast of tour-de-force performances, a gorgeous score, and intimate lyrics that the New York Times Ben Brantley described as “An experience no passionate theatre-goer should miss.”
Warning: Adult themes, some language. Appropriate for most ages.
