Big Edie and Little Edie Beale — Jackie Kennedy’s aunt and cousin — became notorious in 1971 when it was discovered that the once-elegant East Hampton mansion in which they lived was now a dilapidated wreck, overrun with cats and raccoons, along with a five-foot mountain of empty cans in the dining room. What had happened to two of the brightest names in the Social Register? Based on the famous Grey Gardens documentary about the two Edies (who were also the subjects of the Emmy-winning HBO movie), this hilarious and devastating musical brings the ladies back to outrageous and glorious life.
