The original Broadway production of Grey Gardens opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre November 2, 2006. Starring Christine Ebersole as “Little” Edie Beale, the production played 33 previews and 307 performances before closing on July 29, 2007. The musical would garner 10 Tony nominations, winning three, including Best Actress in a Musical for Ebersole.

Featuring music by Scott Frankel, book by Doug Wright, and lyrics by Michael Korie, Grey Gardens tells the story of Edith Bouvier Beale and Little Edie, the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, as they revisit and come to terms with their past. The musical is loosely based on the 1975 documentary of the same name.
