The latest extension to the hot-selling show about aging Bouvier socialites who live in a filthy East Hampton mansion is the final possible extension at PH's Mainstage on West 42nd Street.

"Due to overwhelming demand (and across the board raves for star Christine Ebersole)" the resident not-for-profit is keeping the doors open to April 23. This is the run's second extension.

Grey Gardens, inspired by the documentary film of the same name, has book by Doug Wright, music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie.

Next up at the PH Mainstage Keith Bunin's The Busy World Is Hushed starring Christine Lahti. Its previews begin May 26.
