News   Ebersole Will Do Quick Change From Edie to Edith for June 7 TV Appearances Tireless Christine Ebersole, the Tony Award-nominated star of Grey Gardens who plays two roles in the lauded musical and is well-known for aggressively promoting the show all over town, will get a double workout the morning of June 7.

Around 8:15 AM (ET) Thursday she'll appear as the middle-aged "Little Edie" Beale in a "Today Show" feature about Grey Gardens-inspired style, and at about 9:40 AM she'll sing and dance as Edith Beale with Erin Davie as young Little Edie on "Live! With Regis & Kelly."

The question is — will she bump into herself?

The "Today" feature will address the film, the Tony-nominated Broadway musical and quirky taste of real-life Little Edie Beale. Fashion correspondent Stacy London will discuss Little Edie's influence on fashion. Expect to see several models sporting outfits by designers inspired by Edie. The segment will conclude with an interview with Ebersole, who will also be dressed in a couture designer outfit inspired by Edie.

After "Today," Ebersole will move her calf muscles for a turn on "Live!," which is celebrating "Broadway Week," leading up to the June 10 Tony Awards.

At "Live!," Ebersole will get into full costume/hair/make-up (as circa 1941 Edith Bouvier Beale) to perform "Peas in a Pod" live, accompanied by GG musical director Larry Yurman and members of the GG orchestra.
