A Co-Production with the 5th Avenue Theatre
Little Edie is a dazzling socialite on a downward spiral into a life of illusions and hoarded junk. Just exactly how did Jackie Kennedy’s cousin end up living in a decaying 42-room mansion full of cats? First captured in a cult-hit documentary, this true-story-turned-musical will take you on an unforgettable journey.
Set in the East Hampton mansion of the Beale family, Grey Gardens, and based on the cult-hit documentary of the same name, this award-winning intimate musical follows the spectacular decline and fall of Edith Bouvier Beale, a relative of Jacqueline Kennedy, and her daughter “Little Edie” from a glamorous life of cocktails and house parties to a squalid, penniless existence of bizarre co-dependency in the shambles of their once-splendid home. Performed acoustically in the Allen Arena Theatre, Grey Gardens promises to be one of the most memorable musicals of the Seattle season.Share
