The show, which features music by Scott Frankel, lyrics by Michael Korie and a book by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife), is based on a 1975 film of the same name by the Maysles Brothers about the "eccentric aunt and cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who are East Hampton's most notorious recluses," according to production notes. Michael Grief (Rent) directs.
