“Grey Gardens” at Bay Street Theatre
August 20, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - August 30, 2015 @ 7:00 pm$59 – $85
GREY GARDENS tells the story of Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis. It is based on the 1975 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015. Set at the Bouvier mansion in East Hampton, this bold musical follows a mother and daughter on their hilarious and heartbreaking journey from glamorous aristocrats to notorious recluses in a crumbling house filled with memories and cats.
The cast stars Betty Buckley as Edith Bouvier Beale and Rachel York as “Little” Edie Beale/Edith Bouvier Beale; other cast members include: Gracie Beardsley as Jacqueline; Matt Doyle as Joe/Jerry; James Harkness as Brooks Sr./Brooks Jr.; Sarah Hunt as Young Edie; Simon Jones as Major/Peale; and Dakota Quackenbush as Lee.
The production team includes Hope Clarke (Choreography), Andy Einhorn (Music Director), Jeff Cowie (Set Design), Robert Wierzel (Lighting Design), Ilona Somogyi (Costume Design), Heather Ugrina (Props), Charles Swan (Assistant Director), Robert Bennett (Production Stage Manager), and Denice Yaney (Assistant Stage Manager).
“I am very excited to have a dream cast and creative team joining us for GREY GARDENS at Bay Street this summer!” says Scott Schwartz, Artistic Director for Bay Street Theater. “The brilliant Betty Buckley and Rachel York will bring humanity, depth, and humor to Big and Little Edie Beale, women who are part of the shared heart and history of the Hamptons. They are joined by a cast of dazzling actors and award-winning designers, and we welcome them all. I am confident that under Michael Wilson’s inspired direction, this production will be a perfect finale for our 2015 season and an event not to be missed.”
