    Theater: Walter Kerr Theater / 219 West 48th Street, New York, NY, 10036

    Synopsis: 

    Based on the legendary 1975 documentary of the same name, the new musical Grey Gardens was the sell-out hit of the spring theater season, with leading lady Christine Ebersole giving the most acclaimed and award-winning performance in years. Grey Gardens concerns both the delightfully eccentric (and real-life) aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who were once among the brightest names in the pre-Camelot social register, but became East Hampton’s most notorious recluses, living in a dilapidated 28-room mansion. Set in two eras — in 1941 when the estate was in its prime and in 1973 when it was reduced to squalor — the musical tells the alternatively hilarious and heartbreaking story of two indomitable individuals, Edith Bouvier Beale and her adult daughter ‘Little’ Edie.

    Sometimes a Nightingale Emerges

    Ben Brantley

    November 3, 2006: “Da-da-da-da-dum.” Not exactly a phrase that gleams with Shakespearean eloquence, is it? But once you’ve heard Christine Ebersole sing it — and believe me, this is an experience no passionate theatergoer should miss — “da-da-da-da-dum” is guaranteed to enter your personal memory bank of cherished quotations, the kind you summon when you’re feeling down and thwarted and need to smile.
