Barnes & Noble will present a special appearance of the cast of Broadway's Grey Gardens at the chain's Lincoln Square location Jan. 11.

Part of the store's popular "Live at Lincoln" series, the event, coordinated by B&N and the PS Classics record label, will feature the entire cast of the musical — including leading ladies Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole and Tony Award nominee Mary Louise Wilson. The appearance will include musical performances and a signing. The store location is also currently featuring an elaborately decorated window dedicated to Grey Gardens.

Doors will open at 5 PM for the 5:30 PM event.

The appearance will kick off with the performance of three numbers: Christine Ebersole performing the Act One closer "Will You?"; Ebersole joined by two-time Tony Award nominee Bob Stillman for the duet "Drift Away"; and Matt Cavenaugh and Erin Davie singing the duet "Goin' Places."

("Goin' Places" is one of three new songs written for the Broadway production, and this event will mark the first time fans will be able to hear the song outside the theatre. As the CD preserves the score of the original Off-Broadway production, "Goin' Places" doesn't appear on the world-premiere cast recording on PS Classics.)

A new Broadway cast recording is being considered, the producers announced. Stillman will play the piano on his duet with Ebersole; musical director Lawrence Yurman will accompany on the other two tunes.

Following the performances, all nine cast members (Ebersole, Wilson, five-time Tony Award nominee John McMartin, Cavenaugh, Davie, Kelsey Fowler, Sarah Hyland, Michael Potts and Stillman) will participate in a CD and poster signing. It is expected to last until 6:30 PM, prior to that evening's performance.

Grey Gardens, based on the documentary film of the same name, is currently playing the Walter Kerr Theatre. The book is by Doug Wright, lyrics by Michael Korie and score by Scott Frankel.

Barnes & Noble's Lincoln Square location is at 1972 Broadway at 66th Street in Manhattan.
