We've been hearing really strong praise for Acting Up Stage's latest production, Grey Gardens, at Canadian Stage's Berkeley Street Theatre. Critics and audiences agree Lisa Horner is superb and the rest of the cast more than holds their own in this moving production.
Based on the cult classic documentary, Grey Gardens is a tragic, funny, and utterly unforgettable musical about two “staunch” and legendary women: Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale – the infamous aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Once the pinnacle of American high society, Big Edie and Little Edie became tabloid fodder in the 1970’s when they were discovered living alongside feral cats and raccoons in the dilapidated, flea-infested remains of the family’s East Hampton estate.
The winner of 3 Tony Awards and rave reviews on and off Broadway, the musical adaptation of Grey Gardens explores the fine lines between dependency and love, hope and fantasy, and the past and the present.
But you'd better act fast if you want to catch this one. Grey Gardens closes on March 6th and tickets are going fast. Click here for more information.
