Grey Gardens (The Musical) brings to life both the delightfully eccentric aunt and the cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.  Once among the brightest names in the pre-Camelot social register, these two women 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 alternately hilarious and the heartbreaking story of two indomitable women, Edith Bouvier Beale and her adult daughter "Little" Edie.  Grey Gardens won three Tony Awards in 2007; our production will star UWEC faculty Dr. Mitra Sadeghpour and Dr. Toni Poll-Sorensen in the title roles!
