Grey Gardens is an American seriocomic musical with book by Doug
Wright, music by Scott Frankel, and lyrics by Michael Korie, based
on the 1975 documentary of the same title about the lives of Edith
Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale by Albert
and David Maysles. The Beales were Jacqueline Kennedy's aunt and
cousin, respectively. Set at Grey Gardens, the Bouviers' mansion in
East Hampton, New York, the musical tracks the progression of their
lives from their original status as rich and socially polished
aristocrats to their eventual largely isolated existence in a home
overridden by cats and cited for repeated health code violations.
However, its more central purpose is to untangle the complicated
dynamics of their dysfunctional mother/daughter relationship.
